Subject: RE: BS: Rap for emperor
We find that, overall, the Idaho potato differs but little from other foods produced en masse for masse consumption. There are, however, exceptions, as many of Our small farmers and even some of Our larger ones are now growing excellent potatoes of other than the russet variety. They produce for Us purples, goldens, creamers, reds, and other varieties which but a few years ago We found difficult to obtain. We do no condone water wastage or the indiscriminate use of -cides and We have Our doubts about the wisdom of spraying dilute hydrochloric acid on the plants a week before harvest to kill the plants and "firm up" the tubers. We do find it good that this practice is giving way to cutting off the plant and leaving the greenery to be used as green fertilizer after harvest.

We believe, and therefore it is true, that the UC Galway notes meant that Máire Ní Scolaí partook a bit much of the juice of the corn.

We hereby amend Our earlier declaration so to exclude members of Our Realm from Our "You kill it, you eat it" policy.
