Water, water everywhere -
Today's article by Jeff Mapes (see photo of the Columbia River) about proposals to sell Oregon's water to LA because, according to state Sen. David Nelson, R-Pendleton, it is "a vital commodity just being flushed down into the ocean," Nelson said, "and we're not getting any use of it" seems pretty crazy. For one thing - "we" ARE getting use of it - We being the animals, the plants, the planet, as well as the humans. Nelson thinks that "Oregon could be a Saudi Arabia of water." Hmm. I'm not buying that idea!
