Dear flamer on the May *Analog* for the use of ethnic stereotypes:

I thought that the reply in V9#60 on steretypes was quite to the point.

You should have complained about the ignorance of the laws of physics in
the April (perhaps March -- copies not here) issue!

Now there was a disgrace for a "science fact and fiction" magazine! The
main story-line required the group of people inside an adrift,
non-rotating, satellite to make it face the other way. Someone figures
out that he can run around the inside of the satellite. They do this,
crawling, then running, and then they stop, LEAVING THE SATELLITE WITH A
NET ROTATIONAL VELOCITY.

So much for the recent net articles about Oberth wheels.

So much for the conservation of angular momentum.

So much for the physics talents of the Analog editors.
