Op/ed on the quick action against the EPA library
Fang-Face writes "There is a piece reprinted at AlterNet.org, originally published at TruthOut.org, titled
A Step Shy of Book-Burning
. It is about the closure of the EPA library, and the author, Kelpie Wilson, basically accuses the Bush administration of attempting to implement a new Dark Age. Given that:
The EPA's precipitous move to close the libraries was based on a $2 million cut in Bush's proposed $8 billion EPA budget for 2007. EPA bureaucrats did not wait to see if Congress might restore the funds or shift budget priorities in order to save the libraries; it acted immediately to box up documents for deep storage, and shut the doors.
. . . I can certainly see her point; although I do think the title is a touch over the top myself."
