Hey folks, don't bother.  It's not worth the time.  I didn't expect anyone to 
take offense with my remark.  Just having fun.  (Real explanation in last 
nights post) Didn't read any replies on the subject until I was cleaning out 
old e-mail last night.  Sorry!  

I think AIS and the shows are all great, almost as great as irises 
themselves, and I have no problem with the business end of irises.  Honest!  
Also, I see nothing wrong with good natured discussion, but tone and 
intention are often lost with the written word.  It it open to 
interpretation, and we each come to the written word with our own set of 
values, past experiences, and preconceived notions.  

I've never enjoyed the arena of argument.  Sorry, but it's a product of my 
past.  My only beef with the list was what I saw as unneeded bias, rancor, 
and contention.  IMHO people were haggling over their differences.  As I've 
stated before, I don't see why we can't concentrate on those ways in which we 
are alike rather than those in which we are different.  When irises quit 
being fun, I'll quit growing them.  

In an effort not to make the type of statement I just did, I made a clearly 
exaggerate statement about iris shows and their invention.  Never expected 
the 'crack' to be held to historical accuracy.  ;)
