by Terry Andersonvia Wall Street Journal
Thursday, August 28, 2014

Gun owners may view President Obama as public enemy No. 1, but wildlife have reason to cheer. Thanks to gun control policies supported by the president and leading Democrats, gun and ammunition sales have skyrocketed and so have excise tax revenues. Those revenues are earmarked for wildlife restoration.

HOORAY FOR THE EPA: The Environmental Protection Agency created rules that made the environment cleaner. In a rational world, the EPA would now say stick a fork in it, it's done. But bureaucracies never say they're done. Done means bureaucrats are out of work.

Letter: No Simple Answer to Bee Issues Exists

by Henry I. Millervia Wall Street Journal

That is because so much of the world is vulnerable; currently affected areas include Australia, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, North and South America, and the Middle East.
