If your a 'part-time organic beekeeper', does that mean your only organic some of the time? or that you are only a beekeeper some of the time?   Just because there are over 1000 people in an organic group, does not mean they all adhere to the principles of the group and use no treatments.

btw, aren't most saints dead? Smiley  Maybe it should be Sir Michael..

>And, he adds: "Who should be surprised that the major media reports forget to tell us that the dying bees are actually hyper-bred varieties that we coax into a larger than normal body size? It sounds just like the beef industry."

I did not say that. That was a misplaced end quote in an article that was quoting me.

>It might be a solution to the vanishing bee problem, as he suggests: it might also be that people putting WiFi hotspots in remote fields are causing it. Which should we take more seriously?

Who is he?  I never suggested it was a solution to the vanishing bee problem.

>"It is not an uncommonly held opinion that, although this new pattern of bee colony collapse seems to have struck from out of the blue (which suggests a triggering agent) it is likely that some biological limit in the bees has been crossed. There is no shortage of evidence that we have been fast approaching this limit for some time," opines Bush.

I did not say this either.  Again the misplaced closed quotes in the original article made it very unclear what I have said.  What I have said was on my web site, and what I have said about CCD is pretty much nothing.

I have emailed the author.  We will see what he says.

I'm not Catholic, but if I were, I'd have to be dead to be a saint.  On the other hand the reformation movement I grew up in would say all Christians are saints.

welcome to the wonderful world of the media spin machines. smiley after one notable (for me) interview filled with thing that i didn't think, much less say, i avoid the press like the plague.  most stories are written from the position of the interviewers agenda.  it doesn't matter if it's CBS or some small hobby circular.

that's ok.....at least people can go to your web site and get good info.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I have been approached by the media a few times and always refused to talk to them.

I didn't say anything to the media in these cases.  They just got a quote from my web site and failed to close the quote at the end.  Then someone did a news story from the misquoted news story.

None of these talked to me about it.

Are you sure it wasn't a politician instead of a Journalist?  Both misquote with impundity and then complain about being misquoted.  The 2 types of professions most likely to misrepresent something are Politicians and Journalists and they both do it for the same reason.
