  i appreciate _ehp_'s response; it should certainly cover the concerns
  raised.  i will post your decision to the 3 lists i sent my original appeal
  to contact _ehp_.
  a visible announcement in _ehp_, if you haven't already (gpo mailed the may
  issue at the begining of august!) concerning your overall new policies and
  explaining what triggered the changes would help allay the concerns i have
  been hearing.  putting all your publications on the web is a large task,
  but does counter the price increases by gpo.  i appreciate this solution.
  as to niehs' policy of 'free-while-they-last' for back issues of
  _supplements_  ... it was nice while it lasted!
  thank you for ensuring continued access by all to niehs publications.
