What? Judges swayed by photographs?

Pg A-10 of "THE" manual:
"Never should his votes be based on shows, slides, publicity or
popularity of a hybridizer..."

I am probably getting on the wrong side of everybody with all this, and
I am not trying to shoot at Gerry, but it seems that if a judge is a
judge, they ought to act like one and if they don't, then they shouldn't
be one. If the system doesn't work, then fix it, don't patch around it.

Reality is: if a judge is going to be influenced by a picture, there are
plenty of catalogs to go to without worrying whether the iris in the
calender are annotated or not.
