Polar Bear Friday

Really cute polar bear costumes. We have protesters from GreenPeace camped outside of our building today.

2 of the protesters are dressed up as polar bears in an effort to have the special rule issued in December, by the Bush administration, retained. The ruling protects the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act. It is related to the effects of greenhouse gases and climate change. The administration has until tomorrow to make a decision on the ruling.

Yes, I just checked and saw the news release that says the ruling will continue.

But they really are cute costumes. They have got to be sweating, it is close to 80 degrees under full sun in the middle of DC.

Today is my short Friday. Okay it is only shortened by an hour, but hey, that's significant when you work 9 hour days.


Oh yeah, GO PENS!
