Molly Ivins column also ran in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this a.m.
Alleged that an Alabaman who is a candidate (or already selected ) for a
judgeship formerly was in a position to advocate on behalf of bombing
runs, I believe in the Marianas. He's alleged to have said that the rarer
the bird, the more interesting to birders, (so making birds rare was a
good thing).  He might have been joking.  Or this might have been an
April Fool's joke on Ivins' part.  However, I recall a President who said
of trees something like "If you've seen one, you've seen them all",  and
I think it's not impossible that the remark Ivins quoted about birders
might actually have been said by someone who really doesn't give a darn
about any species other than us.   [log in to unmask]
