And we're done! It was a nice run, chowing down on the pink fleshy filets. But your days of feasting on the glorious chinook salmon are over, my friend. Yesterday, the Pacific Fishery Management Council voted to ban all commercial and recreational salmon fishing off the coast of Oregon and California, in an effort to halt the virtual disappearance of the tasty fishies. Meanwhile, the Chron reports, governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency, asked Bush nicely for help, and promised to appropriate $5.3 million for salmon restoration projects. Too bad we don't have $5.3 million. Hey, you know what would help? How about a vehicle licensing fee that would generate billions in revenue? Too bad the gov killed the fee as his first act in office.
