Status Report, and an Old Review

My paper linked in the previous post was sent back without review by Physics Letters A. This is what the general physics editor said:

Dear Mr. Lush,

I regret that your article is not suitable for publication in Physics Letters A as it does not satisfy our criteria of urgency and timeliness. Please consider submitting your work to a regular journal having a more pedagogical bias.

Thank you for submitting your work to our journal.

Yours sincerely,
(the general physics editor)

I then submitted it to Physica Scripta. Their status shows it sent out to three referees, as of a week ago, with one already having returned a report.

Meanwhile, here is an old review for amusement, of essentially version 3 of my paper about L. H. Thomas' 1927 paper:

The journal is Studies in the History and Philosophy of Modern Physics.
