You know the more I look at this statement the more I am flabbergasted by
it. Hey, Mr. Ford people are never going to want a car when they can have a
dependable horse.  Go to the moon?  Why the he** do that, JFK!!!   Hey, the
darkies are happy in the back of the bus.  Hey, Mr. Linnaeus, all this
scientific name stuff is a waste of time - no one is going to adopt the use
of that gibberish.  Hey, NABA  asking people to look at leps through
binoculars rather than collect them is a waste of time - people aren't
going to change to that.  Common names for subspecies? Now there is a real
brain dead idea.
