Endangered Species

On my way to work this morning I heard an NPR report about the Giant Palouse Earthworm. Apparently there are some folks who want to get the thing declared an endangered species. I'm not quite sure how I feel about protecting a rare three foot worm.

Yeah, I know all about that stuff about how we are all part of a web of life and anything that effects one part ultimately effects ALL parts. But there are some things I just squish. This sound a bit too big for squishing. However, advocating for its protection is not a biological battle I'm signing up for any time soon.

I guess we should try to save them so future generations could enjoy a nice buttery fry up. I bet this is PROTEIN !!!!!
