But that simply begs the issue...

True no one likes a pop quiz. The question is why part of the class
got a pop quiz when the other part of the class got a take home exam.

How does characteristics of a henna powder no longer existing serve
well the community of henna artists in this context? What happened
to Kimia and Sharkiyya is like giving Great Aunt Lucy and Great Aunt
Mae that pop quiz and giving Cousin Lil and Cousin Sarah their grades.

So the testing and analysis has to be unannounced or it is invalid.
Therefore, the act of announcing the testing and analysis of the
henna powders that are being sent in now for the second list, renders
those results invalid by the shear fact that it was announced to
them. If that is not so...if analysis of this second group of henna
powders will not be invalid then why would the first group have been
invalid under the same conditions.

I am not pissed off. I am genuinely perplexed and rightfully so. An
answer to that question would clear this up for me.

I have not asked why Kimia was not treated specially...provided with
most favorite status. I just don't know why she was treated at all.
Of course you can't test what you don't have. But you also can't
have it...can't be provided with it unless you asked for it. And
that gets back to the stated need for the test and analysis to be
unannounced. Which gets back to why the necessity for secrecy with
one set of tests and analysis and not the other.

It is just an interesting circle. If I grant impartiality...it still
begs the issue.
