A comment (or two)

At this stage, almost every article is going to have broken ("red") links to as-yet unwritten CZ articles, but it seems a bit much to write "The naming of species in the genus Musa, family Musaceae, is a complex business. See more, including the taxonomic history, at Musa," when no such article exists.

Also, I find the Hobbies Workgroup categorization a little odd. I suppose it's there because bananas are a potential garden plant. But then isn't just about anything a potential hobby for someone? Do we need editorial oversight from the Hobbies Workgroup for an article on bananas? —Eric Winesett 11:01, 24 November 2007 (CST)

For a)no, I don't think so. It's in a note, and I put it there because it *is* a complex business and *someone* should speak to it, and a note will remind someone to do that...eventually....As to b)well, I started this, and I was thinking of cooking with bananas, and gardening with bananas (I am from Australia, after all. I suppose people don't spend time cooking and gardening with bananas in Philadelphia.) Thinking more about it, "Food Science" would probably be better...?

We can agree to disagree on the first part, but this much I know: Next time I fill out a form that asks about my hobbies, I'm definitely writing "bananas". —Eric Winesett 23:47, 24 November 2007 (CST)
I'm going to write "sexual dimorphism" [1]. ;-) --Joe Quick 00:07, 25 November 2007 (CST)
Ha! "Name your hobbies" -- Photography, stamp collecting and bananas. Least it would be a talking point! "Sexual dimorphism" was one of my wittier moments. I'll go change the cat; surprised you didn't already. Aleta Curry 14:19, 25 November 2007 (CST)
