Re: E-M:/ The World According to Russ

Preditctably, however, Mr. Harding's speech is mostly an attack on the 
very environmental regulatory structure that he seems to acknowledge--in 
that same speech--has been largely effective.  He attacks water permits 
for factory farms, advocates for a private-sector takeover of municipal 
water systems, argues against regulating nonpoint source water pollution 
and says it's a mistake to keep Canadian trash out of Michigan.
