Mudflats has some great new reporting on Sarah Palin's nomination to be Alaska's attorney general. It all has something to do with lima beans, homosexuals, and how hot the governor looks in a sponsored jacket. I think. And this Ross classic, on the Exxon Valdez spill:
We see almost every day, the same films of what appears to be the same oil-soaked duck pulled out of the water. The state claims to have a number of refrigerated vans filled with about 30,000 carcasses of waterfowl killed by oil. No doubt some of these birds were casualties of oil. But had several thousand people combed Prince William Sound for dead waterfowl any prior summer, as they did in the summer of 1988 [sic], there is no doubt that an equal number of dead birds could have been accumulated.
