Sunshine is the Best Sterilizer

It’s not strictly a wildlife issue, but it’s important to know: the leadership of the State Legislature is trying to relax rules on lobbyist disclosures.

People are often surprised to hear my contention that government is far less corrupt these days than at any time in the past. But if we’re going to keep working towards the ideal of a government that actually reflects what the voters want, as opposed to special interest groups, it’s important to keep tabs on lobbyists - including me!

A really good case in point: this article from the New York Times, showing that somehow, United States Senators pick stocks better than professional mutual fund managers. Huh.
