And you feel your rants against Ben are? Interesting. All
I'm saying is why don't you fellas work this out in court and leave us
out of it? Seems like a reasonable approach to me.
I want to examine Hosta genetics without all of the political banter.
So, I've created a domain name for this, and will soon add some web pages
and a discussion forum where serious students of this issue can come and
share information. A friend of mine teachers genetics at Rutger's
and I hope to have he and others from ISU become involved in
some discussions. It's just me trying to be helpful but apparently
I'm mucking it up as I go along if I've managed to offend you. I
know you are a serious student of Hosta genetics, both at the microbiological
level and the hands-on knowledge level. The only reason I invoked
the power of "the Carolyn Schaffner approach" was because I want to
discuss Hosta genetics, not unrelated topics. This was to discourage
This undertaking may not appeal to you anyhow because I hope to be attracting
those who are interested from the molecular biological point of view of
studying Hosta genetics. We're going to be talking about some
rather indepth stuff because I don't know that we can go a lot further
in our understanding of these phenomena without a closer examination of
what is really driving their occurance--from the inside out.
I regret if you felt isolated or defensive. I worked on that "manuscript"
(as Marvin Lemke likes to call them) for six hours trying to eliminate
all possibly offensive language. I just wanted to discourage people
from requesting a login name if all they want to do is post trivia or fight.
I don't have time to explain why understanding transposable elements is
more important to me than jokes, politics, or fights. There are separate
posting areas for this type of thing.
Maybe I need to lighten up and get a life but my mother-in-law is moving
in today. I've got a lot on my mind... :-) Tee Hee Hee....
