    Uncertainty vs. Failure

    Both are useful tools.
    Uncertainty provides the motivation, and the failures find the means.

    I have also given a neg a slight bleaching, refix, then selenium toning, to bump up the contrast. But rare.

    I will disagree, Brian. There was what could be conceived as a thinly veiled anti-climate change statement made, which caused the gov't link to be posted...so it was definitely leaning that way.
