I like the "Dusky Frog" aspect of this article. In the early 70's I was a victim (at 16) of "Affirmative Action" requirements. I was terminated from my job because the company was required to have a position open in case a Black person needed a job ... the company was 90% Hispanic ... The town and area had no "Black People" and to this day has very few. Up to that time I thought overt prejudice was stupid ... coming from Maine the form of prejudice up there is "People from Other Places vs. People with a Canadian Background" (& a French sounding last name) which was just ... stupid. After the run in with the Affirmative Action Law, I still considered overt prejudice stupid but I could understand its basis. Like the Dusky Frog scenario ..

Environmental activists and politicians would like you to think that we must love their regulations -- or hate trees and animals.

I love trees and animals.

But you can love nature and still hate the tyranny that environmental regulations bring.

The Environmental Protection Agency just announced it will boost gas prices ("only" a penny, although industry says 6 to 9 cents) to make another minuscule improvement to air quality.

In New York City, my mayor wants to ban Styrofoam cups, saying, "I think it's something we can do without."

Congress already dictates the design of our cars, toilets and light bulbs.
