John & Company,

Please do not misunderstand me.  There may well be beneficial
nematodes.  But given the CA Dept of Ag "knee jerk" reaction to
nematodes . . . of ANY venue . . . , I think it's going to be a hard
sell.  My counsel is to make sure that none of our California
correspondents unwittingly violate state law by importing a nematode
into California.
