It's the conservative way


Why all the carping about carp ("Carp's Approach: A Voracious Fish Edges Closer to the Great Lakes," June 30 editorial)? It's pretty simple to understand. We've been going through this for years now. The conservative-led Supreme Court has twice denied relief to Michigan and the Great Lakes states to close the Chicago waterways for one simple reason: money.

Money caused the disaster in the Gulf, and now money is going to create another disaster in the waters on the northern border. What a legacy for our children.

Too bad they weren't drilling in the Mississippi; they could have killed all of the Asian carp and they'd be heroes.

Conservatives ... sheesh
