After seeing the reaction when you dared to print a sweet little picture of the delightful trillium ovatum, walking in the woods this afternoon we saw MY favorite local flower, the slinkpod (Scoliopus Bigelovii). It also is divided into three petals and three sepals and the fruit is divided into three segments. But the slinkpod is pollinated by flies and smells bad (it’s also known as “fetid adder’s tongue.”) It occurred to me if a trillium picture would spawn a storm of Rush-tication, what would the slinkpod do?
Perhaps now is the time to mention Arizona’s proposed law which would give employers the right to fire female employees if they couldn’t not provide evidence that their prescription to birth control was used for non-sexual purposes.
That’s so light-weight. We suggest mandatory chastity belts where (male) bosses hold the key.
