Re: Re: We are so sorry to announce ......


          "Moribund society"!   You're getting too senile,  uh,  I mean
cynical.  The AHS does a lot of good things.  The American Gardener is an
excellent magazine; it ranks right up there with Horticulture and Fine
Gardening.  AHS puts out some very good information in a variety of ways:
The A-Z and other books are first rate.  I haven't been to any of the annual
meetings yet, but they
always have a great list of speakers.  Etc, etc, etc.  Lighten up; we like
curmudgeons, but it doesn't hurt to be kind once in a while, even to
organizations.  IMO

                                                  Josh Haskell,
                                                  Zone 5 and starting to
warm up, a bit
