Dear Stevan,

I get everthing except this paragraph:

*> Suppose the probability that the DNA will call someone guilty when they
*

*> are really innocent is very low, and the jury misinterprets this as
*

*> meaning that the probability that they are really innocent when the DNA
*

*> calls them guilty is very low; so they vote guilty.
*

I think I understand what you are trying to say, but have

you not just the same thing twice in this sentence? If not,

then I think I am more confused that I thought.

Thanks, Jennie
