My point, perhaps inartfully stated, was that Lee Z. Has been dead for some time and to speak of her in the present tense suggests that the criticisms of her knowledge are not based on fact.
Opinions are like noses; everybody is entitled to at least one. Those based upon fact are more valuable than those based upon emotion, hearsay, etc.
I had several fruitful exchanges with her over the years and respected her knowledge. Her insights remain valuable today. As with all things, there may be countervailing opinions.
