Selling Out Owls

Bush Administration, environment

Les Blumenthal, McClatchy Newspapers:

A group of independent scientists has concluded that a draft recovery plan for the northern spotted owl was “deeply flawed,” fueling allegations that the proposal was manipulated by political appointees in Washington who were determined to boost logging in Northwest forests.

No shame.

    No shame.
    One hundred days of rain, and we get one day of sunshine;
    The sky above shows no owls squealing like a red-tail hawk.
    Weary to the bone, a muddy road, legs caked in moist red clay!
    Still, we must keeping slogging on one step at a time in the Light.

    Te Blumenthal article can’t be news. Only an affirmation of what we all know to be the Bush modus operandi.
