"President Bush will create the world's largest protected marine area today, designating as a national monument a 1,200-mile-long chain of small Hawaiian islands and surrounding waters and reefs that are home to a spectacular array of sea life, senior administration officials said last night."I saw Cousteau's film that is mentioned in the article too and couldn't agree more with this action. I won't comment on the irony of the action by fiat, however, in regards to the Escalante/Grand Staircase fiasco of the last administration. It is not that I don't want to, it is that I am having a hard time typing from the prone position (flat on the floor) that Bush's action has put me in.
