Ms Hauter,

When I called Public Citizen about this matter last week, I was transferred through two different people to Tyson Slocum, Public Citizen's "Research Director, Critical Mass Energy & Environment Program".  Apparently, now, you feel I should have talked to you instead, but nobody at Public Citizen ever suggested it.

Also, despite your claim, I am not attacking Public Citizen, I am criticizing a very specific action planned by Public Citizen.  I have presented a variety of documents which I feel support my position, including three emails by other activists, which I read to Mr. Slocum over the phone and then emailed to him:

Everything said about Richard "Rich Rad" Meserve in the above letter applies even more to Public Citizen, and the Nuclear Renaissance meeting is little more than a publicity stunt for the media, despite your assertion otherwise.  These points are described in detail in my most recent (and most widely distributed) email on this subject:

I have warned Public Citizen that your reputation is on the line on this issue -- but your reputation would be on the line whether I had said anything or not.  I suggest you get your facts straight before shooting at the messenger again.
