Dear Norman --
May I ask you for any suggestions along the lines of this query (copy to Fyman[?] Colman[?])?
Much appreciated
Joshua.
Norm --
I don't know whether I've ever had any chance to say this out loud (though I think it was very evident in some of my recent papers.) In recent years, I have had a chance to reflect back on the noise I used to make about the one-gene, one-enzyme theory, and I now see that I was not only factually wrong in opposing it, even as an intellectual exercise, but showed rather poor judgment in failing to defend it. Perhaps I was reacting to the idea (that no one else ever had) that it was the ultimate truth; what in science ever is!
Best wishes
Joshua.
