 ### You are right but then I am somewhat fatalistic when it comes to this
particular case and while I deplore the losses suffered by our side in the
conflict, I am not sufficiently invested in astronomy to do more than just
gripe and condemn our enemies on this list. I doubt you could convert Mr
Momoa to the side of goodness and progress. I'd rather choose my battles
and engage in activism to e.g.  protect our rights to genetic testing,
since this issue is much closer to my heart.
