Re: AIS: HYB: Geo. Waters' Bulletin Article

As to  these problems being inevitable, they could probably be reversed,
and are  not inevitable, if proper breeding procedures are followed.
However they  are not. Inbreeding is quite common when trying to bring
certain traits to  the forefront, and this has the propensity to bring
along the "good" genes  as well as the "bad" genes in ever  concentrating

I have assumed that that Mr. Waters, who is British and a professional  
wordsmith, chose his words carefully when he spoke  of  "selecting"  for decorative 
traits, not "breeding" for  them.
