OK, I'm going to sound really dumb, but I don't get it...

I mean, I get the GITMO part and the plant being tortured, but why is
the ASLA represented as the torturers?  And why is Hortus III being flushed 
down the toilet (although it should be, since it hasn't been updated 
since '76 and Cronquist changed things for the better a decade later
anyhow, but don't get me started)...

I'm guessing he's saying landscape architects just plant plants to kill 
them and have no concept of taxonomy, but seeing as I hold a Bachelor's
of Landscape Architecture (that's right, it's called a BLA) I take
exception to that generalization.  In fact, I hope I *am* an exception
to that generalization...
