Thank you to everyone who wrote a letter, made a call and showed up. If this scenario sounded and felt familiar, that's because we went through this several years ago. Sincerest thanks go to Maggie Sergio, a former Marin resident who alerted us about this then and now. I had already written a letter, and wanted to go to the Coastal Commission meeting, but we had previous plans - a secret surprise early birthday gift for my husband.
Plans could not be changed, and when I found out that Wildcare was sending some reps, well, I felt free to be with my family.
Anyway, I digress. We, the people will likely have the opportunity to do this again and again, or at least until our government is completely overrun by fascists, or, on the other end of the spectrum, is representative of most people with common sense, who understand that dumping 1.5 metric tons of anti-coagulant rodenticide onto a wildlife sanctuary is a bad idea.
That is, once we have had the chance to learn exactly what an anti-coagulant rodenticide does, and that there are safer, more effective alternatives.
Which begs the questions, "Why is this poison still allowed to used, to be sold? How is it that anyone with any sense of decency is still making and selling this? Why are you not adapting your products to make a better, safer world, instead of clinging to your old, outdated and dangerous ideas and methods?"
It has been said that when we light a candle, we cast a shadow. Well, not when we light a candle in the darkness.
Thank you all for shining your light.
p.s. Did I mention I'm running for President? I entered the race in April, and am currently in search of a campaign finance manager and a few passionate volunteers. Interested parties may leave a message at 415-789-MARI
