If so then do give the dead man some credit. 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.
