Weihs disproved?

Donald Graft kindly notified me of his most recent article on EPR (1), in which he describes a computer simulation that models the results of the famous Weihs (2) experiment. The model is local realistic, and neatly mimics the results obtained in the real experiment, while making use of reasonable assumptions on detector calibration etc.

As soon as the source of the simulation has been made publicly available I will add a link in this post.
