Thanks to the Friends of the Willapa for clarifying that the real reason for the refuge proposal is to stimulate the economy of the Penninsula. If you build it, they will come. And I thought that it was about habitat restoration. 

It’s one thing for the city of Long Beach to waste thousands of dollars on a wire “dragon” to attract tourists. The city of Long Beach is solvent. It’s an entirely different matter with the federal government. It’s not solvent. Far from it.

If you are having trouble making your mortgage payment, you probably shouldn’t be shopping for a big screen TV. 

Actually, that is a concept which is lost on most Americans, and evidently, employees of the federal government.
