And so it starts

Damn environmentalists get in the way of bidness, so let's eliminate the rules when reconstructing New Orleans.

The Environmental Protection Agency could suspend any law governing air, water or land in responding to Hurricane Katrina under a measure introduced Thursday by the chairman of the Senate environment committee.


Mr. Holbrook added, "As Administrator Johnson indicated yesterday, there are a number of uncertainties remaining, and we, as well as the administration, do not want those uncertainties to delay actions that affect people's health."

Er, last I looked, the whole purpose of environmental laws governing air and water quality was to improve people's health. Does anyone else see a contradiction here?

Hi, Linkmeister:

There's probably a simple explanation, but I was wondering why part of the line is missing (on the right margin) when I click on your blog.
