Dr Sheldon Krimsky
[stamped, SEP 23 1982]
re planetary quarantine policy.
Thank you for your generous remarks elsewhere in "Generic Alchemy."
A small point -- before a new myth is started -- (and inconsistent with your very careful scholarship on more central matters.)
On. p344 you have confused my position on quarantining Mars with the moon.

I did also ask that the moon be protected from confusing introjections from earth; and the need for that is certainly muted if not stilled by what we now know of regolith formation on the moon.
Sincerely,
Joshua Lederberg.
