Dr. Warren Pollock has asked me to post the following message in response to Dr.
Zonneveld's post of this morning. Warren is not a member, but wished to be heard
here as this post concerned him.
From Dr. Zonneveld:
The same silence was met with my article on chimeras and polyploids of
It is mentioned now by Pollock ( 2002 !), however without
details were it can be found. What is it, that make people so
even just to mention that such articles exist? Or is this
indication that article 2 of the Bylaws speaking about ""fostering
Hosta knowledge"" should be changed?
Or is this a case as in the old days were the plant owners wanted
keep their laborers ignorant?
For those that are interested:

Message from Warren Pollock:
the devil is Ben Zonneveld talking about? I mention his highly interesting
paper on polyploidy by its full title and where it was published in my item
titled "Diploids, Triploids and Tetraploids;..." that's in the article "This and
That: 2001" in the Fall 2001 (Vol. 32, No. 2) issue of "The Hosta
Journal." It's on page 80, left column, 4th full paragraph starting with
"Lois Girton then mentioned...." I even briefly relate some of this most
interesting article's findings.
If Dr. Zonneveld pointed a smoking gun
at me, I think I deserve an official, open-forum apology from him.
