    Actually, Tom, I didn't delete your prior post. Guess Rob or Dolores did. So you're off the mark.

    and BTW, I am in SD right now, enjoying "DR time." Wanna beer?

    Thanks for the additions, Larry. The second one seems very dated, however. But nice for a historical perspective. Thanks again.

    The sad part is that a lot of these laws can do a world of good if only they were enforced.

    Josia -- glad you posted here, it reminds me to post the link for the Ecological Society of the Cibao, which I had been meaning to do.

    HM - Don't depair just yet. Did you check out the latest entry to the Green Team blog, on enforcement?

    Best Regards,
    Keith
