oooohhhhhh, Ben, now you are hitting below the belt.  There aren't many 
countries in this world that could have endured what we just went through 
with the election and not have it turn into a national crisis.  That is the 
price we pay for the great degree of freedom, including the freedom to 
partake of what the press has to offer, or to not  partake of the spin.  I 
would not choose to live anywhere else in the world, well maybe Kentucky. 

As to the hosta society, I view it more as a social group than a scientific 
group.  I have two goals in mind, one I love to garden and two I love people. 
 They are not the main goal of my life but they are my hobby.  I try to keep 
that in perspective.

Considering that most of the people that I know on a daily basis do not even 
know what a hosta is, I was happy to be a part of the convention last year 
where everyone seemed to share my obsession and I loved it.  

I agree that your articles should be published and that those of us who are 
just hobbyist, in that we are not the scientific mind group but the dig in 
the dirt type could learn from you if given the chance, or not, because we 
would then have a choice.

Before I start looking and sounding like Andrew, I will shut up.  I am 
smiling Andrew.  Ben just happened to rub me the wrong way.  N.
