Write Now! to save Louisiana's wetlands

America's Wetland Write Now! campaign:

Announced by Louisiana Governor Kathleen Babineaux Blanco, the Write Now! initiative is designed as a back to school project to mobilize citizen action and inspire Louisiana natives everywhere to write friends, family members and decision makers around the country to educate them about the urgency and importance of saving America's WETLAND. Citizens are being asked to write letters, send specially-designed free postcards via mail, and visit, where they can write and send electronic postcards free of charge.

Speaking of America's Wetland, the U.S. Senate still hasn't voted on the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA), but it still contains that Vitter provision that would remove the authority that the Corps of Engineers has to regulate some cypress logging activities.

Visit Your Right Hand Thief for a post emphasizing the political pressure that needs to bear down upon the White House and Congress in order to keep the required financial resources for coastal restoration from washing away along with Louisiana's disappearing wetlands and coastline.

The first link might need fixing.

Yup - thanks. Screwed up a couple of times today. Insomnia doesn't produce a very clear head.
