Dear Good Fruit Grower:
I just received the June 2012 issue. As always, lots of good and timely information included between the covers.
However, I’m hoping it was a gross oversight and not intentional that the individual in the cover photo is not identified by name. He obviously plays an important role in our industry.
We identify fruit varieties by name, we identify orchards by name, we identify insects by name, etc. Certainly human beings deserve at least equal recognition.
At the very least, our manners are better than that; we need to do better than that.
I do like the photo and appreciate that it was selected for the cover. I can empathize that it is not an easy task to make cover photo/art decisions.
Ed Note: Although the person shown on the cover had agreed to be photographed and was identified, the photographer was, regrettably, unable to secure permission to publish his name.
