Trouble with Newton's First Law was found in my original study, but the trouble is not easy to see. In fact, most readers fail to see it. Old ways of thinking stand in their way, and so the purpose of this note is to reexamine Newton's First Law, and to put its trouble in perspective with the state of modern physics.
