Your "garden of queries" begins with an inquiry concerning "Joe Pye's
Law." I know nothing of this, though find it intriguing. It may be
of interest to the inquirer to be told that, in my yard, there flourishes
a tallish weed which comes up each year, crowned by deep pink flowers,
which a botantically-minded friend some years ago informed me was known
as "Joe Pye Weed." Does that mean that _any_ large weed gets called
"Joe Pye"? I dunno.
