Washington Post:

Federal Wildlife Monitors Oversee a Boom in Drilling.  “Recent studies of mule deer and sage grouse, however, show steep declines in their numbers since the gas boom began here about five years ago: a 46 percent decline for mule deer and a 51 percent decline for breeding male sage grouse. Early results from a study of pronghorn antelope show that they, too, avoid the gas fields.”  This is why I went up to Wyoming for vacation ... if this trend continues, the Wind Rivers, and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, will be a distant memory.

NY Times Editorial:

The President and the Ports.  “The Bush administration has followed a disturbing pattern in its approach to the war on terror. It has been perpetually willing to sacrifice individual rights in favor of security. But it has been loath to do the same thing when it comes to business interests.”
