The Corps Diagnoses Itself

Melissa Samet of American Rivers sends along this gem of an editorial from the Billings Gazette, in which the Assistant Secretary for the Corps gives the most accurate self-diagnosis I’ve seen in some time.

The Corps’ current operating plan calls for it to keep using the river for barges and ignore fish and wildlife.

Lawsuits are expensive and eat up time. But this is a perfect example as to why sometimes, you don’t have any other alternative.
