Re: NFC: Carolina Parakeet.the cause......

Ray, Gee and to think I knew you when you had no computer and were rather
no longer you are becoming a rather articulate spokesman for Native 

 I would say without a doubt that you hit the nail on the head. The
endnagered species act is seriously flawed. That is one of the main
reasons we added the entire US senate and soon will add the Congress to
the NFC. If they can begin to understand the real world issues we have a
chance to get significant changes in legislation.....Your coming along
rather fast Ray , your powers of observation writing skills and all.  I
look forward to seeing some of your work in a Major Publication in the
next year or so. Let me know If I can help....Id better be carefull I
could lose my colume to some new writer from Wisconsin :)
