Point Counterpoint

Henry Lamb, VP of the cryptically-named Environmental Conservation Organization, has this to say about invasive species in today's WorldNetDaily. Lamb is upset, perhaps rightfully so, about the idea of the government trying to tell private land owners what to do about invasive species that are on their land. (If it were me, I'd be more worried that my neighbor's giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) or purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) was going to find a way into my yard.) Apparently, one of the ways the government and environmental organization are encroaching on our rights is by registering various invasive species internet domains. The ECO has responded by setting up this scary looking web site. Lamb is also a fan of Jim Beers, mentioned in a previous ISW blog entry.
