Quote of the Day, Part Two

[Whitman County Commissioner Jerry] Finch pointed out a lot of rancor was directed at environmental groups because of that [giant Palouse earthworm] lawsuit. He said much of the disconnect between farmers and environmentalists has been brought on by “outsiders” at the universities who tell residents of the Palouse how to best manage their land.

And we all know that the grad students are moving on to somewhere else that has much more asphalt and concrete because that is where the job opportunities are located. Funny how that works.
