Has anyone noted that George Bush is holding his first news conference of his new administration tonight in his effort to increase his admistration's wanton destruction and pillaging of this country's natural resources? What do you suppose he will say about this bird, who is a victim of unsustainable use of our natural resources? We shall see tonight at 830 pm EST.

I'd guess he'll suggest that we site new oil refineries in otherwise underutilized national wildlife refuges like the one in Arkansas.

Huitzil: I am so glad to know that people like you and me will be around to remind him how things really happened! Hopefully, we will never lose our ability to think and speak freely in this country!
