U.S. Backs Return to Whaling (WTF!)

U.S. Backs Return to Whaling: "The U.S. has inexplicably endorsed an expedited proposal to finalize the management scheme for the resumption of commercial whaling by 2005." What? This is especially disconcerting since I have just finished Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything in which he details the careless extinction of numerous majestic animals by humans. Humans are a nasty species and certainly not a good choice for stewards of all life on Earth. Nevertheless, that's what we are. Can we get a team huddle on this first?
