In Response:

I have taken the liberty of responding to the Van Norman, Palmer, and Jackson and the Lin Letters to the Editor. I believe that all the issues raised in both letters have already been addressed in one way or another by Drs. Cousins, Yaksh, and me in our editorials. The reason for publishing these two letters is to illustrate the wide diversity of opinions that exist regarding these papers. Our editorials clearly reflect concerns with our own decisions that were again expressed by these authors. Dr. Cousins and I hope our editorial reflects the plaguing deliberations that we endured.
