    Take A Deep Breath, (Another Rant)

    TROUT IN DANGER ?
    Scenic Vistas Important ?
    don't drink the water
    GOT YA' BY THE BALLS NOW !!!

    ..It's a simple equation. If you can't win a court case against an Environmental Protection Agency ruling then just get your buddy the president to gut the agency and become its secretary.
    .. We'll show 'em who's boss! Just 'cause we lost 13 out of 14 cases with support from big energy, big power, big coal, big food processors, big mining, and even Peabody Power  --  doesn't mean that we will give up.
    .. All these good folks have given me money for my political campaigns. They are good friends and won't influence my thinking me at all. My mind  behaviors and decisions are already set in high alkali concrete.

    -- Spoil piles don't hurt trout streams. Ozone can't hurt anything. Clean water is not important. Mercury generation and disposal just doesn't need to be regulated.
    .. The clean air act is a silly law. If the Chinese can live in the air of Beijing then we can too. They are making lots of money. We can do it too.
    .. It's a hollow drum that we beat here. We're sad to say it. Our psitocentric viewpoint is colored by our love of the fish.
    .. Our homocentric viewpoint is colored by our hope for the future of our species. We're a bit depressed.
    .. We know that you all know this. We know that you are doing everything that you can. So click away from this page and go about your business.

    .. There is nothing we can do to save the planet !
    .. It will still be here no mater what we do.
    .. On the other hand, there is much that we can do to enhance or degrade the environment that allows us to live on this planet.
    .. We encourage our neighbors and friends to pay careful attention to the circus unfolding in Washington, D.C.
    .. Our national election cycles are 2 years, 4 years, and 6 years. Probably too long for most fisher folks to remember.
    from:  CHICAGO TRIBUNE
    .. There is much truth in the adage: "All Politics Is Local." What is needed now is a change in perspective.
    .. All politics is, in this day and age, global.
    .. It is incumbent on those that can see beyond their local trout stream or their bank account to figure out ways to enhance their memories and their activities.
    .. Law suits are already piling up. The cost for the EPA to do battle in an effort to not do it's job will run into the millions of dollars.
    .. That's your money and our money. Don't try to save the planet  --  try to save the environment.

    .. Both the breeze and the temperature are up above decent levels. The sun is bright and the neighbors report that there are thin clouds of midges Between The Lakes.

    .. It should present a real challenge. The famous fishers of this village do battle with a 6 1/2 foot four weight and a speck of fluff plucked from their umbilicus.
    .. We're going down there with an 8' seven weight and a five foot leader.
    .. We've got some  old flies that need a workout. We know that it will be taxing since there is a bit of mud showing up.
    .. Right after a nap.
