Fished Out

If you had a seasonal job and your season was canceled, would you be able to hang on until next year? That's the question a lot of salmon fishermen are asking themselves. Because we use to much water, eat too much of everything, dump all our crap in the oceans, the salmon fishing season is canceled for the first time in history. Think of that. An entire industry, a major food source, gone. Another ominous sign that we have overtaxed the environment. We are discovering the limits of what we thought was limitless. Remember the old margarine commercial? "It's not nice to fool Mother Nature! Ka-boom!" We're in for an unpleasant education.
