zombified? congress

Only a few days after I wrote about angel's trumpet—the zombie plant— frequent Ijams visitor Kim Pieratt sent me a photo of one she found at the United States Botanic Garden in Washington D.C.

The botanical conservatory is located on the Mall within a stone's throw of our country's Capital, the home of that august body of lawmakers that seem idle-minded and somewhat senseless for the past few years. One side simply does not want to work with the other.

My friend Charlie suggested they were all "brain-dead" or zombified.

Do you think the nearness of this giant plant might explain it?
