Quote of the Day - Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river. - Nikita Khrushchev

Snakeheads in DC (In the Rivers, Not Congress)

Non-native species are the bane of environmentalists. The importation of species from around the world doesn't keep our environment pristine. Well, I won't go into what species we've propagated around the world. That's a whole different issue.

But, it appears that Snakehead Fish may have invaded the Potomac River in Washington, D.C. It looks harmless enough, but apparently, even though they are tasty, they are ravenous and destroy the current ecosystem.

They are from China, and brought to the U.S. as aquarium fish. They can jump out of the water, and survive on land for a few days. Isn't that how politicians got started?
