To Readers & Other Interested Parties:

I just got back from a yellowfin tuna fishing trip (we caught 563 lbs.) and
was sent the following by a government employee attempting to access my BLOG
site. This means that the US Department of the Interior has determined that
my writings are not suitable for government employees. I considered
contacting the "Enterprise Security Officer" and/or the "Deputy CIO" but
anyone with a title straight from HMS Pinafore is probably too busy to talk
to a poor taxpayer.

For the rest of you, I hope to still be able to contact you for the
forseeable future and for you to be allowed to read what I write about
imaginary birds (Ivory-billed Woodpeckers), sacred animals (wolves, marine
mammals, etc.), and holy sites (Marine Sanctuaries, Wilderness, Roadless
Areas, etc.).

Actually this is both amusing and encouraging.
