Dear Fellow Highest Primate, Douglas,

Don't worry about the weird purists, we aren't mad because we prefer
hybridising!  Be patient a little longer. The current obsession with the
inferior nasty things in the wild will soon die.   Modern horticulture with
squeaky clean wall to wall tissue culture will make things easier for us in
the west.  No CITES or Lacey problems any more.  Hybridisation and computer
planned parenthood will soon make
the inferior rightly extinct forever.  So Aroiders, (frozen pollen and hot
spadixes!), chill out, don't be Party poopers.   After all, we are in the
Era of the wisest Ape ever.  We've got to have better flowers to celebrate
the wake for the nasty old wild we never really cared about anyway.  Got
any brilliant writing for the Newsletter about your private Eugenic work?  I
noticed that you haven't yet offered any new hybrids to the Spath Control
Centre?  Could you?    Not dull species thanks, they have no future now

See you at the Wake!

EdyRon
