Robert Murray

As a well-established octogenarian and a long-time bacteriologist who has, like you, studied our good friends the bacteria as closely as modesty allows I admire your contention that microbes need to be understood for all their properties and capabilities.
As an attitude to our human lifetime I offer a remark by Carl Robinow when he was our ages and a speaker referred to an "old patient of 70 yrs age" he was heard to murmur " Oh to be 70 again". And anent our bacterial friends my father, EGD Murray,would tell students "It is not the meek that shall inherit the earth but the bacteria"; so they are in there for the long haul and we had better appreciate their nature.
