I don’t wish to be pessimistic, but I do like frogs and I admire bats. I love bees and salmon are quite something to watch. I wonder if some governmental agency is being given a pat on the back for keeping an eye on the situation, that is the unknown plagues that each of these species is undergoing. It is hard not to be cynical of this current group in power that has deemed that a fence on the Mexican border is more important than environmental concerns or the property owners whose land is being usurped. I am not just talking about our president but all the rest of Congress that feels so strongly about this issue. What are we doing? Stone walls do not a prison (read border here) make nor iron bars a cage. My mother used to say that to me when I was young. It was true then and it is true now.
