The claim by Rohrlich that the Abraham-Lorentz-Dirac equation is not the correct equation for a classical point charge is shown to be incorrect and it is pointed out that the equation which he proposes is the equation derived by Ford and O'Connell for a charge with structure. The quantum-mechanical case is also discussed. © 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
