Souder) in its attempt to wage a cultural war within the borders of the U.S. -Key notes: The paper that caused controversy for Sternberg was that the Meyer paper wasn't appropriate for his journal (Systematics) and that he didn't follow the normal guidelines for Peer Review; he handled the whole thing himself instead of the normal process of having it reviewed by associate editors. (This by itself is job malfeasance on the part of an editor.) His claim for doing this was that the associate editors weren't qualified. However his own area of expertise is Systematics and NOT Cambrian Paleontology; he should have forwarded the paper on to an expert in Cambrian Paleontology.

\"Why is it, Master, that ascetics fight with ascetics?\"

\"It is, brahmin, because of attachment to views, adherence to views, fixation on views, addiction to views, obsession with views, holding firmly to views that ascetics fight with ascetics.\"
