I take it you missed the post in which I credited Creighton for
the translation work that gave FSR its international outlook and
contributed to its deservedly stellar reputation under editor
Charles Bowen.

That said (twice now), Creighton was still a textbook-style
crank. None of his defenders on this thread have actually tried
to defend his views, I note, and it is, of course, those views
that are at issue.  And when his time came, his turn at FSR's
editorial helm -- during which his borderline-demented beliefs
came to the fore -- destroyed the magazine's good name and drove
away most of its best writers.
