I second Marge's observations.

When you write a letter to Lidsky, consider sending a duplicate to the
Secretary of the Interior, Gail Norton. Whatever you might think of Norto=n's
other activities, she is currently reviewing the work of the National Inv=asive
Species Council, the source of all the trouble. The Secretary of the Inte=rior is
one of the co-chairs of NISC. Address below.

Until July 22nd, post office mail (not UPS, etc.) from Canada to the US i=s
free from the phyto requirement. Based upon the experience of the North
American Rock Garden Society's seed exchange, the Canadian government
is definitely not yet set up to issue phytos on seed shipments.

Norton's address:

Secretary Gail A. Norton
U.S. Department of the Interior
1849 C. Street N.W.
Washington, DC 20240

Repeating Marge's address for your convenience,

Michael Lidsky
4700 River Road
Riverdale, MD  20737
