So I writes ta Ben Bova and
he writes back and he says,

"Dear Mike Pearson:

"...No slur intended, and so far you're the only one who's taken it s a slur, out of the hundreds of thousands of people who've read MARS."

Recapping: Ben Bova writes:
"But to the Anglos, steeped in conquest and killing, whenever their pale eyes turned to the red gleam in the sky that marked their brother world they trembled with thoughts of blood and death."

And that's not a slur, he says.

I don't care if he's the ex-president of
Mensa. That's a slur and it's stupid to say it's not.

Warm regards,
