Remember Ketchup the Vegetable?

Back in the l980’s, the Reagan administration famously categorized ketchup as a vegetable, to meet minimum nutrition requirements for school lunches.

Now the second Bush administration has continued this glorious tradition of Republican prevarication, this time in regard to wetlands.

Check out "Field & Stream" conservation director Bob Marshall’s biting column on the topic. This is how it begins:

The Bush Administration announced last week that the nation is no longer losing wetlands–as long as you consider golf course water hazards to be wetlands.

Really.
