Importing Bulbs and Seeds

I said I'd said enough, but Debbie's posting puts me over the top.  I mean honestly - this is America - why do we have government functionaries lurking on lists, making insinuating and bullying remarks to people like Debbie who merely post observations that the government isn't doing its job very effectively; and why do I have respectable people writing me privately and saying "be CAREFUL - this agency is a loose cannon, it doesn't play by any rules, and it will hurt you"? 

Lordy - we aren't talking about terrorists here - we're talking about plants.  Pretty soon we'll be talking about McCarthyism, though.  So glad I voted for Obama...

Ellen, unrepentant
