Hi, my name is Jim Macdonald, and I have an odd assortment of interests. In no particular order, I love Yellowstone, I am an anti-authoritarian activist and organizer, and I have a background in philosophy, having taught at the college level. My blog has a lot more links to my writing and my other Web sites. In Jim's Eclectic World, I try to give a holistic view of my many interests. Often, all three passions show themselves interweaving in the very same blog. Anyhow, I think it's a little different. But, that's me. I'm not so much out there, but taken together, I'm a little unusual.

    Katie Couric - the job of the EPA is to protect people from the environment

    Aghast...I'm working on my stuff from Yellowstone, a wonderful trip, to find myself watching Katie Couric's first 60 Minutes investigation, dealing with firefighters dying sick from inhaling pulverized glass and debris during 9/11.

    I hear Katie Couric say this, and I only notice 1 news critic who even bothered to notice. She says to Christine Todd Whitman, former head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):
    “But with all due respect, your job as the head of the EPA—the Environmental Protection Agency—is to protect people from the environment.”

    Umm, Katie, I think it's the other way around. You'd think CBS might have caught that except Christine Todd Whitman barely blinks and acts as though it was her job!

    Thankfully, the environment didn't get me in Yellowstone, and hopefully, more to the point, I didn't destroy the environment.

    Aghast, but it gave us a lot of laughs at our home last night.

    More on the part of the environment known as Wonderland soon...
