Fact is I love Talc when ostensibly used in task appropriate amounts.

With Talc now again all up in the News and Courts, I undertook extensive readings seeking material from a Prosecutor's perspective, and also for arguments from Defense Counsel, seeking case building material.

What I found is that there is no clear cut open and shut evidence for support of either argument.

But armed with that "intuitive knowing," a high caliber Attorney presents to a "Jury of Peers" what they already desire to believe.
It is not necessarily the matter of facts or truth.
And we all know that a very high percentage of the population resentfully wishes to "stick it to" any individual or corporation that has money and thus power.
Considering that, except for rare individuals who are willing to believe in the system, most people sitting on a jury weren't smart enough to get out of Jury duty.

The Question then:  are Potters erudite enough to comprehend the science and factual ramifications of something as convoluted as the Talc arguments and controversies where big money is the bottom line of thought fueled by avarice?

To end this steaming Talc controversy in our bright potters minds let's ponder the factual evidence that many old(er) men and women potters lived to upper 90's ...BUT if they hadn't used Talc in their lead glazes and clay bodies for all the years of their productive lives, they may have lived to 120 years or more!!!!

Oh and Mel, I'll gladly receive from your hand that last bag of Talc you purchased in 1968 on my next visit to Minniesota. <);>0)--}==========<

Best of health to you all,........
