Progressive Water Resource Management Gone Wild

Here in California, the Delta Smelt, a non-indigenous (imported) fish, is given grand reverence over the human need to grow and harvest food for living and profit. We are very familiar with the over-reach of power over common sense in the pursuit of progressive political perception.
