Your public remarks here on the net have raised a few points which should be resolved. I have, in the interest of resolution, provided a compilation here, and trust you will make use of it, and provide clarification. I will remind you from time to time, knowing how busy you must be, by reposting these queries on a regular basis. Question 1 October 25, 1996 ------------------------------------------------------------ In an article published on June 4, 1996, you included the following claim: "Canadian economists estimate that a typical, smallish 'goy' (i,e, non-Jewish) Canadian family pays upwards of $300.00 Canadian extra yearly to pay the salaries of rabbis who ensure that many of the supermarket items they consume are 'kosher.'" (Anon, Eat less) In response to immediate demands that you document that claim, you responded the following day, June 5th, with this remark: "A legitimate request. I'll look up the specific references (names, dates of publication, etc.) as soon as I can get to a library." (Anon. Re: KOSHER) Nizkor asked: "Given that General Foods has reported its cost was 6.5 millionths of a penny to obtain kosher certification for a Birds-Eye product, and Heinz has reported that the cost `was so small we can't even calculate it,' do you still maintain that this `report' from `Canadian economists' exists, and that it substantiates your claim?" (Anon. dayan18, Re: KOSHER TAX) On October 25, 1996, you finally admitted that you had cited fraudulent data: "However, I nonetheless admit that your point is well-taken, since I haven't, in fact, come up with the references to back up the claim that kosher certification costs the typical Canadian family about $300 per year. Thus, since I'm not able to support the claim with such references, I hereby retract it." The question, therefore, is this: Why did you lie about this data in the first place?
