You can say that again. And since a Republican-controlled Senate and
House can't compromise, it looks like the ESA will need to be repealed
before much can be done.

This points up the problem I have with legislators: politics is the art
of compromise. If it were up to politicians, pi would be equal to 3.

Then again, maybe that's how a cut involving 3 MBF becomes 2MBF. Anyone
checked recent legislation regarding pi? <G>
