Paul, I thought you made your point very clearly the first time. I continue
to be amazed how often other people who do not know you insist on trying to
put words in your mouth.

My point is to let people know where the masses of migrating 
monarchs come from that appear each Sept / Oct. in the 
midwestern states and at the overwintering sites in Mexico.

Most fall migrating monarchs do not come from tracts of land set 
aside as nature preserves. They come from the vast corn and 
soybean crop monocultures found in the upper midwest which are 
created and maintained with the products produced by big oil, 
chemical, biotech and farm machinery companies.
