RESPONDING TO AN article over at Flora Pittsburghensis, one of our correspondents speaks very passionately about his subject, becoming rather agitated in fact when he considers the dire consequences we face if we approach the topic from the wrong direction:

This is the topic that I have a serious strong passion about. I believe most people today forget about how important this issue is. I believe the foundation upon which a great many other things are built in case we do this action wrong, there are plenty of dire consequences in your immediate future. Hence, we has to be careful and think about how exactly we want to approach this topic. I thank the author for giving a excellent first try at drawing near it.

Dr. Boli will add only that this passion is the more laudable in our correspondent for having been roused by an article on Arisaema triphyllum, a subject on which few readers manage to have such strong opinions.
