I've been busy and havn't kept up with the postings. 
Am trying to get through them tonight.
Thank you, Al, for this reasoned and thoughtful
posting.  I know only a very few of you personally but
have enjoyed the short time I've been a part of
iris-talk very much and intend to continue doing so. 
I am saddened that some of you feel that you must
leave the group.  Some of you I agree with, some of
you, I don't but we don't have to agree, not even on
such an important topic.
Please, let us all grieve for the losses the people of
this country have suffered and for the fact that our
country may go to war, right or wrong, and get back to
enjoying the camaraderie of this group and the
growingof this lovely flower that we are all addicted
to.  What a delightful addiction and it is delightful
to share with fellow  fanatics.
Please, everybody, re-read Al's post and let's resolve
to let all this stuff go and get to the business at
hand.  Please don't leave the group!  Everyone has a
lot to contribute.
God bless all of you.
