Subject: RE: [DCHAS-L] Eye protection in chemistry labs

While I concur with Larry=92s intent and share the concern for not advertising unsafe practices, I strongly oppose directing the energy of this group at C&EN.  That publication is extremely careful to review its editorial content for safe practices.  It has taken effort on the part of many of us to achieve this and C&EN is not perfect, but they are doing very well.  Further, when they have a question, they come to CHAS/CCS for guidance.
The content of advertising lies in the hands of the advertiser.  If ABC Chemical Company publishes an advertisement depicting unsafe practices, our efforts should be aimed at improving ABC Chemical Company.  In the case cited by Larry, CHAS wrote directly to the CEO of the company. 
It is easy to find out the name, address and email of a CEO - the outcry of this group should be targeted there; not at the messenger.
