Abstract
In my editorial in the November 1987 issue of Optical Engineering, II invited reader response to Joe Geary's recommendation that we accept "idea-type" papers for publication in the journal. An "idea-type" paper is, presumably, one that simply puts forth ideas without including any results or substantiated conclusions. I received a response from Bud VanderLugt, who is opposed to this idea, and I will attempt to paraphrase his remarks in the following paragraphs.
