    Tom,

    I think that the life of a manager is not an easy one. The life of ANY resource manager, in that sense. I think we sometimes assume that managers are out to get blood while hugging trees and driving a Prius, but in fact are given the impossible task of facing the needs of such divergent groups, and having to take in to account so many variables...it doesn't sound like fun in the least. Could they do a better job? Sure. But I think all parties could, for that matter.
    "Coastal sprawl" is an opinion.

    Science has no agenda and even less of a social planning mandate. Science simply tells a non-fiction story. What is done with that story is politics.

    Agreed on the science portion, very well said, and unfortunately, this definition of science is being hijacked by certain groups, therefore giving "science" a bad name.

    I'm interested in hearing more about the coastal sprawl portion, however. Not saying your wrong by any means, but I was referring to urban growth along coastlines, throughout the U.S., which are home to many of the U.S. biggest and fastest growing urban communities. But again, just want to know more about it, not arguing over an opinion.

    Take care,

    Julio

    When I was born (native Miamian),there was a bounty on Florida Panther.Who knows,there may be bounty again within my lifetime! Times change.Quickly.
    It's the race for what is left in the face of "inevitable" growth.So far,fisher/hunter constituency has played only minor role in effective dialog.
    Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink
