Re: Questions about Decay/Paper

Greetings. Normally, I'm a lurker on this list, but I had to respond to this

have spent over a decade researching defoliation and Vietnam.

        [Michael Miller]  Dioxin is NOT a defoliant. It was a byproduct of
the production of ONE of the chemicals used in 2 of the many defoliants used
throughout the war.
