Which is why I posted the notices.  These are still feel good programs,
that while they help some individuals, are so limited as to be
ineffectual to the environment in general.  Actually, has little to do
with the environment, in my opinion, but more to do with the burros
(here used in Joes context, not yours) feeling good over an
administrative grant, which is more what it is in Texas.
