Bob Barr on Environment

Libertarian nominee for President; Former Republican Representative (GA-7)


Human beings are more important than mussels

I, at least, appreciate the manner in which Gov. Sonny Perdue is pushing federal officials and his counterparts in Florida and Alabama to recognize what he already understands--that human beings are more important than mussels. If we can emerge from this temporary crisis with a broadened recognition that human survival trumps shellfish reproduction, then something quite positive will have resulted.
