Missing Doc Prather

We get email all the time asking what ever happened to our regular contributor Gordon Prather, former nuclear weapons scientist and master debunker of war party lies.

Well, Doc Prather had a minor stroke some months ago, and though he is doing great at his rehabilitation – how many 75 year old men do you know who can ski down mountains at top speed? – it may be some time before he starts writing again. He may not at all.

Keep the well wishes coming, and I’ll keep passing them along to our friend.

  1. Prather is a national hero. Our work to defeat warfarism is much, much more difficult now that he is not on the scene.

  2. Get well soon. A physicist, I have enjoyed and mostly agreed with your columns for years.

    We need your analyses now more than ever– maybe to help Obama follow through on even a tiny bit of his arms control "ideals." The president needs help with his homework.

  3. Say it ain't so, Dr. Prather. And if while skiing headlong down the mountain you happen to see Obama, or Lieberman, or any neocon for that matter ahead of you, well, who could blame you if your path went slightly awry….

  4. heartbreaking – we need Gordon Prather, badly.

    Best wishes to you Dr. Prather.

  5. Dr. Prather has this rare ability to explain very dense and difficult legalese and technical stuff so very clearly and transparently in the vein of that maxim often attributed to Einstein that everything should be made as simple as possible but not any simpler. I admire that man. I wish him all the best whatever he decides to do.

  6. Take care of yourself, Doctor Prather. If it should happen that you do come back to write in your area of expertise for the public once again, we will all benefit. You've always been a learned and expert and prominent voice against the drumbeat for war with Iran.

    If it is not possible for you to return, we'll try to manage…somehow.

  7. No one has provided me more unimpeachable arguments to contest the frame-up of Iran being carried out by the bipartisan Washington elite than Dr. Prather. For telling the truth about the NPT, the IAEA, and the commitments and obligations Iran has and does not have with regard to them, Dr. Prather carried out the most thankless task of them all: telling the truth. So let me thank you for that Dr. Prather, and I wish you all the best in your recovery and many more years of happy and peaceful life.

  8. Dr Prather has been instrumental in my understanding of the Iran nuclear issue. Please get well soon and return and enlighten us more, Dr. Prather!

  9. Jaal: E-book I of the Kaal Trilogy (By Sangeeta Bahadur): Arihant is a strong warrior who's blessed with heavenly powers and is deemed as each the savior in addition to destroyer. The Immortals of Meluha (Amish Tripathi): One of the best-sellers of 2011, this mythological fiction ebook remains to be going strong among the many readers. Shop the e-book at LSNet and get good reductions. Probably the greatest fiction books that the lovers of mythology must learn.
