It has been 10 days and so far I have not gotten the courtesy of a reply to my email to Marikay Ramsey (requesting documentation on her claim)...not even to tell me that she was referring the question elsewhere or acknowledging receipt.
I'll wait a bit and then go the FOI route.
In addition, in today's SUN NEWS (a weekly paper that circulates in the Cleveland area), there is nice column by a wildlife specialist at the Stark (County) Parks & Wildlife Center on bats. Great article...except she repeats the canard that cavers are the cause of WNS spread. I called her to ask for documentation of her claim, left a message, and have sent her an e-mail. It's like wack-a-mole....but we need to hold these folks in positions of public influence accountable for spreading unsubstantiated claims that besmirch cavers.
