We're Number One!

Seems that my home state of Alabama is number one in something, at least - we have more plant and animal species than any other state...unfortunately, we're also the leaders in rate of extinction. It seems that our penchant for building dams and re-routing rivers and streams is having some pretty adverse effects on the wildlife.

Hey, I'm not worried, though - I know Bush and Co. will shortly come to the rescue with new reforms that...sigh...oh well, seeya on the other side, gopher tortoise - it was nice knowing you.
