The Real Story about the Delta Smelt
I know that y'all have probably heard enough about the delta smelt, the suffering farmers in California's San Joaqun Valley and the poor Latino's who have to pay Paul Rodriguez's new salary since he can't get a comedy club booking any more. If you really want to understand the nuances behind the shimmering water, you need to pay close attention to Jon Stewart.
I linked to Mike Fitzgerald on this story before. He got the facts right. Stewart got the target right and I love his simple, nuanced skewering of the whole thing. Follow the link. The Daily Show is a friend tonight.
