Golden Rule During his cross-examination of his position that powerline EMFs couldn’t cause any biological effects, Morton Miller, a professor at the University of Rochester said that he had just gotten a contract for almost a quarter of a million dollars from the Department of Energy to study the biological effects of powerline EMFs. The hearing examiner asked him, “Why do you want to study that if you think there are no effects?” He replied, “I follow the golden rule.” “What’s that?” the hearing examiner asked, and Miller replied, “He who has the gold makes the rules.” Miller is exactly not me, I kept saying to myself over and over.
