The New York Times (Finally!.. sheesh) On Belugas

The New York Times is obviously not the quickest from the mark sometimes. Sheesh. But here's what they had to say (realize, this is hardly an environmental or lib paper):

There is no doubt that Cook Inlet is vital to Alaskans. But it is also vital to the species that live in its waters. Listing the belugas does not mean shutting down the economy of the Cook Inlet. It means adjusting it to accommodate species that cannot adapt or survive any other way.

Gee, how rational can one be?
