phlegmmo: Why don't they just call it "Crap Czar" and have all the other czars report to that one?

Was going to suggest that Obama is already the Crap Czar, but you win the boobies award.

Anybody who biatches about White House Czars is a teabagger moron (yes, redundant, I know).

The Bush administration had 47 "Czars" and for some reason FOX didn't stage a freakout over them.

Durbin is crazy. He thinks we should find a way to transport ships from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi with no water contact, then in the very next sentence says that he doesn't even know if it is possible.

I can't wait to get the hell out of Illinois and these moron politicians.

So why do they need a carp czar instead of just a couple dozen kids with some corn and fishing poles? Why make things more complicated than necessary? If you REALLY want the carp gone, throw a $20/head bounty on them.

Savoir-Faire: Durbin is crazy. He thinks we should find a way to transport ships from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi with no water contact, then in the very next sentence says that he doesn't even know if it is possible.

Perhaps transporting without water is impossible, but there might be a way of doing it without transporting organisms across ecosystems. We'd need to use locks that fill and empty after some sort of filtration. Of course, this then introduces the problem of trying to keep zebra and quagga mussels out of the filtration system, but we (humanity) unfortunately got ourselves into this mess and we need to do something to fix it, or, at least, limit the damage. While, ideally, we could release an HIV analogue among Asian carp that wouldn't jump to other fish species and watch it obliterate their numbers, however, that is unlikely.

So, unfortunately, in order to maintain ecosystems, we need to eliminate these threats, which is going to cost money and a lot of effort.

It's "czar" because back in the day, guys who wrote newspaper headlines were sad, lonely men who thought this short, attention-getting word with the Z in it (that's right, they notice which letters aren't getting used all that often) was the shiat.

Yeah, and that's rather irrelevant. The carp will probably cause way too much damage before we can get them under control.

But relax. The Great Lakes are only the largest fresh-water system in the world. It's not like they're important or anything.
