Where have all the salmon gone?

Weak Salmon Run Shuts the Northwest's Fisheries
"Tens of thousands of adult salmon that were expected to swim up the Columbia River this spring are missing..."


"The salmon is the ultimate symbol of the Pacific Northwest. These stalwarts have fought all the obstacles we've put before them in order to return to the spawning grounds of their birth. We ought to be ashamed of ourselves if we can't save them."
- Cecil D. Andrus, Governor of Idaho

We ought to be ashamed of ourselves, period.

Love Addonizio.

Sad but true, Bev. I'm just discovering Addonizio - she's wonderful!
