Papaya Madddness is a piece where I was letting lose and having fun. True, I was pondering the Hawaii Papaya situation and the GMO modification of the virus-resistant Rainbow papaya to be able to resist the Ring Spot Virus. In Hawaii we have a lot of unsettled issues with Monsanto’s ground zero being on Maui. I don’t like being a testing ground and I don’t think we should alter nature so much that we can’t go back. Nature to me is perfection, however, there is the issue of – what if we are going to lose a species forever – should we let it die or step in? In this you may also see some red bamboo, some gene splicing, a little magic and some madddness.
