Flycatcher flap shows idiots are in charge

The recent flap over the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher and the consequent speed trap along Highway 145 is just more proof that the idiots are in charge, and will remain in charge as long as we the people continue to be the gullible, uninformed, uncaring and uninvolved citizens we’ve turned out to be. As long as it is not us getting surprised with a $330 ticket, we can look the other way. Moreover, if it is not us whose project is shut down over some bubble-headed conservationist notion, it’s all good. But, If there is any positive in this absurd situation, it just may be that the Flycatcher can keep the flies down whilst we are being exposed to all the crap dropped on us by those in charge.
