Editor's Note: This letter is in response Ray Rasmussen's latest column.
Yes, through the IPC and other organizations "WE" dropped the ball several times, especially when it came to ROHS. But a few voices in this wilderness stood out and they certainly tried to whip up resistance against RoHS, namely John Burke. Along with John, Joe Fjelstad, Harvey Miller, and others were very much opposed and very vocal, as well.
Too bad they did not get more powerful support.
