I really appreciated hearing President Obama mention SALMON in his speech. Leaving the joke aside (which was very funny), he points to a real crisis facing salmon in the Northwest. Glad that the camera panned to Secretary Locke, who's Commerce Dept. via NOAA fisheries, is continuing past failures to restore salmon in the Columbia and Snake Rivers. Could the mention be a nod towards a significant policy shift on salmon recovery which is sorely needed, in the Columbia-Snake and elsewhere? Or is it a passing reference to make a point about government dysfunction? It's worth hoping.
