Nothing to cheer about

A couple weeks ago I cheered Gale Norton's resignation.

Leigh, a Knoxville student who writes about environmental issues at The Nonattainment Zone, finds a particularly egregious example of Norton's abuse of power.

"Outgoing Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton has proudly announced — without a hint of irony — that there has been a massive gain in US wetlands between 1998 and 2004. At first glance, that's excellent news. Unfortunately, most will stop at the first glance. A deeper look will reveal that this report depends entirely on rhetoric and semantics– specifically, how does one define a wetland?"
