Are SDI Software predictions biased by old tactical software?

      [Since Herb was evidently up late, since I was up late also, and
       since distribution of this message may stave off many overlapping
       responses to Bob Estell and prompt many rebuttals as well, it seems
       appropriate to distribute this response from Herb Lin as a special
       one-message issue that you can read along with RISKS-3.1.  SDI is 
       probably one of the most significant debate subjects of our lifetimes
       and deserves thorough coverage.  Yes, it does mix politics and
       technology.  It must.  There is simply no other way.  So, don't be
       UP IN ARMS-D.  But let us keep any subsequent discussion cogent and
       sensible.  PGN]
