What happened to that good old Conservative belief in "free market" and
"capitalism"?

'Fraid you're reading WAY to much into my comments (please note that it
was SOMEONE ELSE who came up with the "Government freebie" idea, not
me).

Just because I do believe in a free market doesn't mean I don't care
where my money goes. After all, one of the tenets of capitalism is, you
got to have capital. I don't like to give mine away willy-nilly.

I'm asking a basic question: Why is ACI charging for every item of
information in its possession? Why does AISC have such a different
philosophy?

I don't think they should be "free," just "not for profit." I imagine a
lot of gub'mint money has gone into the research done at public
universities, for example, the results of which are typically published
by ACI.

If I were calling for the gub'mint to "do somethin' 'bout that," you
might have a point. But I'm not.
