Newsflash For Michigan on Asian Carp

[This beautiful spring salmon is one of the fish we are trying to preserve in the Great Lakes.]
News from Chicago:  "As concerns mount about the presence of Asian carp near Lake Michigan, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin today urged President Obama to appoint a carp czar to oversee efforts to keep the invasive species out of the Great Lakes.
"We need to have one person who coordinates the efforts of the federal, state and local agencies that are doing everything they can to keep the Asian carp out of Lake Michigan," Durbin said during a news conference at the Shedd Aquarium. "We believe it's absolutely essential."  http://www.chicagobreakingnews.com/2010/06/durbin-asks-obama-to-appoint-carp-czar.html


  1. Why don't we Americans just stay out of Lake Michigan, or anywhere else these Asian carp want to go? Isn't that what the plan is for the dangerous parts of Arizona? ;)

  2. You fixed it - just like that! Brilliant!
