Victory, sort of
The House has just passed Rep. Pombo's revised version of the Endangered Species Act. After 30 years of tyranny, Western property owners may finally see an improvement!
Two important changes: restricts the criteria for taking land, and requires the Interior Dept to pay for the land it steals. The bill now falls into the House of Imbeciles and Traitors, formerly known as the Senate, where it will vanish into the infinite gravitation of endless yakkety-yak. But at least the House did something right. Since this happens about twice per lifetime, the House deserves tremendous congratulations!
