I love the phrase "banana apocalypse." And the question "Can this fruit be saved?"

The biologist says "I doubt it, but let this be a lesson to all those monoculturists out there. Stability of any ecological system is increased by genetic diversity!" You'd think that this would be promoted on page 1, but no, we must worry about providing jobs to gene jockeys before worrying about the global food supply. Gah.

They are trying, though. Mostly using my pet laboratory technique, tissue culture.

It has been a very bad pet lately though. Must housetrain it all over again since I lost my touch.
