7:30 AM -- Now, this is a strange one, so pay attention.
Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), ranking minority member of the U.S. Senate Environment & Public Works Committee (and probably the most Katherine Harris Crazy member of that Old Boys' Club -- which is saying a lot), blogs to the defense of the ever-embattled EPA:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is being accused by Senate Democrats of cutting the flow of information and limitiing [sic] access to information in its agency run libraries. The EPA’s library modernization program is being portrayed as restricting the public’s right to know about environmental issues and EPA administrative actions.
FACT: EPA library modernization makes information MORE Accessible, not less. The EPA’s new library modernization process will make information available to the public, with an emphasis for online availability.
EPA Administrator Steve Johnson testified today before the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee about the availability of all kinds of books
[Gawlee, Maw! All kindsa books!]
in EPA libraries. Administrator Johnson testified that the following books and videos are still available in EPA libraries:
Novel "Memoirs of a Geisha: A Novel"
Book "Fat Chicks Rule: How To Survive In A Thin-Centric World"
Video "Winsor Pilates: Ab Sculpting"
Video "Ferngully: The Last Rainforest"?
Book "The Lorax"
Book "Wordstar Made Easy"
Novel "The Bonesetter’s Daughter"
Book "Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror"?
Well, alright then. Hazardous waste disposal? Ask a Geisha. Global warming? I believe the Lorax addressed that adequately. Carbon emission allowances? Hey. Check with the fat chick...
