Please don't blame "EPA staff"     The "EPA staff" that are offended by 
what is happening are the reason and the source of why you, the public, 
are hearing about this destruction of library information at all.

Blame the top political appointees and the White House Office of 
Management and Budget....those are the "managers" that are calling the 
shots.

The only solution, really, is to un-elect [or impeach] their enablers.

By the way, threats of violence are not allowed on Enviro-Mich....
....please play nice.
