I agree. It would be really nice if some kind soul would make the monarch
report available on the web.  It sounds like it would be extremely
interesting to read and it does deal with an important topic - regardless of
how we each chose to interpret it.

Let's not jump on Paul again - and again - and again. I don't know the
gentleman, but his missives seem rational and, indeed, a good deal calmer
than those attacking him personally. I would add there is nothing wrong with
being a pesticide salesman.

Can't we just cool it and talk about the bugs?
