In that case, it's necessary to smoke out the real motives and expose them for

Be sure, everyone, to write short lettrs of complaint to your congress-
critters. Snailmail, short, lucid, grammatical, polite, but don't pull your

Be sure to include remarks that a huge body of "stakeholders" hasn't been 
consulted. Namely hobby gardeners.
