What do categorizing burger-making as manufacturing and counting farmed salmon as wild have in common? Why, they make the Administration look better. Yup. If all those hamburgers are counted as output from a manufacturing process, then there's barely any loss of that kind of job at all during the Bush Administration's term of office. Similarly, if you count hatchery fish as wild, then there's tons of salmon, so they're not endangered, so the Bush Administration doesn't have to regulate the farming, logging and power industry's impact on those fisheries. Gosh, do you suppose all the folks in those industries might contribute and vote for BC04?

Fuzzy math, indeed.

Oh, come on. There is no difference between farmed and wild salmon. Absolutely none.

Now that's an interesting article, O Hunter. Thanks. Click that link, folks; you might want to know about PCB levels in farmed salmon.

I really like salmon and when I ask if a restaurant's salmon is farm raised the answer is more than likely yes..
More PCBs and Pesticides..exactly what I need to glow in the dark..... ;^{
