Hi Roy and list, 
RE:>>Haven't we gone far enough with this.  First it was that incident during halftime of the Super Bowl, and now, Chick running around naked!
Roy, you're right.  Chic running around naked is almost too much to bare but have you ever noticed how the list comes "alive" once someone gets Chic riled up?       

I'm sure you'll agree that the Janet Jackson costume reveal is blase' when compared to the travesty being committed on the English language during this election cyclye.   To whit, the real loser in this year's run up to the "Democrat" Party nomination is the word "Democrat".  

I wish I had a dollar for every time that I observed the word DEMOCRATIC used when the correct term was DEMOCRAT; H. "My Child Insook" would finally be MINE!   I know I'm nitpicking, but it's like regardless and "ir"regardless--some things just ought not to be uttered even if it IS a free society.   Unfortunately, once one starts to notice such things, it becomes nearly impossible NOT to notice.  

Now I see that Bill Meyer has succumbed to the temptation in a recent post.  And, I previously held you in such high regard, Bill.  Shame on you, Guillermo.  What's the world coming to?  :-) 

RE:>> Hosta.  
I'm behind in reading the AHS Journal.  I wanted to see if my selection of H. "Lakeside Shore Master" as the No. 1 Hosta even made it into the top 20.  Has Dr. Bob's poll been published?  Anyone else have high regard for this specimen plant?  Of course, I really have about 50-100 "top picks" but this one earned pole position for my vote this season for a host of reasons.   I like Mary Chastain's "hybridizing for vigor" as being a top priority. This plant epitomizes that trait as well as many other exemplary characteristics.  

For those unfamiliar with the publication, the "Journal of Hosta Science", Volume 2, Number 2, 2003 has recently arrived.  If you have a bent toward Hosta research, I recommend obtaining a subscription, irregardless of your affiliation with the Democratic or the Republicanic Parties.  :-)
