Sad to hear that Barry Commoner died

"Dr. Commoner was a leader among a generation of scientist-activists who recognized the toxic consequences of Americaís post-World War II technology boom, and one of the first to stir the national debate over the publicís right to comprehend the risks and make decisions about them."

I saw him when he ran for president. He related a story where a reporter asked him something like, "Dr. Commoner, are you a serious candidate, or are you just running on the issues?"
