Latest Taylor Jones Items
Taylor Jones is enjoying the new way she's learning math.
I must take issue with many of Taylor Jones' statements in her letter "Endangered Species Act is worth the fight" (Friday). Ms. Jones' claim that "The law simply requires common sense measures to minimize harm to imperiled species" is simply untrue. Considering most endangered species dwell on privately owned land, any law that makes such occurrences a liability rather than an asset to the landowner makes no sense at all, common or otherwise. Without the Endangered Species Act (ESA), most landowners would brag about having something rare on their property and protect it without the need for any government action. The ESA punishes a landowner for harboring an endangered species and consequently destroys this attitude.
