I found your posting on dominant/recessive genes to be enjoyable and 
informative.  It seems to me that a good deal of confusion could be avoided 
if we didn't employ the "convenient but misleading shorthand" assuming that 
genotypes translate directly to observable phenotypes.  I find this problem 
to be particularly common in behavioral ecology.  Anyway, I look forward to 
reading more discussion of this topic.
