Regarding Bill Walsh's “PVC-free agenda makes sense” [Perspective, July 11, Page 6]: Mr. Walsh said, “Two days after Plastics News published a name-calling diatribe against the Healthy Building Network … ”
Now I've read Patrick Moore's Perspective [“Failed agenda returns as HBN,” June 27, Page 6] three or four times and I still don't see the “name-calling.” That is unless Mr. Walsh considers “activist” to be a pejorative and thus takes offense.
But, then again, I was in the room one time when Bill told the audience — a very “green” one, mind you — “I am a professional environmental activist.” Hell, I thought some of HBN's female fans would faint. (Just kidding.)
So I suppose the question is: What is it Mr. Walsh so objects to? Being called an “activist?” Or having a former colleague (“traitor?”) illuminate the origins and political agenda of HBN?
