Greg, and the List,

I became friend with Roger Leir in 1999. I was reading his first
book, and it seemed very interesting. We were both invited to
the Leeds conference, and so I had the chance to talk with him.
I saw him as a credible person.

I have seen him again several times - we had dinner together in
Roswell in July.

I have listened to many critiques, and I have not changed my
mind. Just an example.

He is still accused, now and then, of having performed
operations that he was not allowed to do as a "foot surgeon". I
even heard recently that he was condemend for that. To the best
of my knowledge, all this is false. If anyone has proof to the
contrary, it's time to show it.

BTW, his name is Leir, not Lier or Liar.

If you want to know more, I suggest that you contact him
directly.

As for the analyses of implants, some have been published (in
his book and elsewhere) but some have remained confidential, for
understandable reasons. As for publication in a medical review,
there is still, obviously, a long way to go.
