A non-customer tells why


To the Editor:

I thought it might be important to let the folks at Polly Hill Arboretum know why I didn’t attend the Aster Identification Workshop last week.

I had to make some value judgments about my discretionary income, so I had to decide whether to pay the $120 fee and pack my own brown bag lunch, or buy five lobsters at Net Result, a handbook on wildflower identification, and a half a tankful of gas for my car.

I chose the latter, just in case you wondered where I was.
