If you ain't a Gator, you should be! Alligators (and endangered crocs) are important indicator species atop their food chains, with sensitivity to pollution and pesticides akin to humans. See ESA blawg. Gator blood could be our pharmaceutical future, too. See ESA musing.


Follow the truth.

"This institution will be based on the illimitable freedom of the human mind. For here we are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it." -- Thomas Jefferson to William Roscoe, December 27, 1820.

Nez Perce Tribe v. NOAA Fisheries, Memorandum Decision and Order, Case 3:07-cv-00247-BLW, Docket Doc. 44 (May 8, 2008).
In an as-of-yet unpublished decision, Chief U. S. District Judge  B. Lynn Winmill held that the filing of a Notice of Intent to sue after the original filing of a lawsuit based onthe Endangered Species Act did not satisfy the statute's absolute requirements.  "This requirement is jurisdictional, Save the Yaak Comm. v. Block, 840 F.2d 714, 721 (9th Cir. 1988), and it cannot be avoided by employing a 'flexible or pragmatic construction.' Hallstrom v. Tillamook County, 493 U.S. 20, 26 (1989)."
