Media Madness

The news that I mentioned yesterday has been picked up by the Chicago Tribune. Enjoy the Barry White reference.

Go ahead, Spo. You know you wanna say it.

Update: Now there's video, too.

Doug--congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment. Would that every struggling species had an advocate like you.

Congratulations once again, Doug!

"Our generation will make the decision for every generation after us which species will survive and which will not survive"

How true!

It is nice to see you in the video.
Barry White joke was cool too!

You make a FINE video subject, and do a great interview here. You've helped your work, I'm sure. Congrats.

"I can't point to the swamp metalmark and say that if it disappears, civilization will collapse..."

Considering chaos theory...the lack of any species could destroy/save civilization. Therefore, the impact of your work is far more important than any of us may understand.

It's great to see this actually hitting the news in these tumultuous times and I'm honored to have met the man so dedicated to this effort.

Keep up the GREAT work Dr. T!

I saw you over on Roger's blog! You look great. Hope all is well. Think my days of floating out to Chicago with anymore regularity ended a month ago when I was out to see my "close" friend. Seems it will merely be a good friendship so with that my time out there becomes matter of when it is convenient for me and works around the rest of my life's schedule. SIGH!

Looks like you are just becoming Mr. Newsworthy! LOL

I never thought of it before, but playing Barry in RCW clusters couldn't help but boost population numbers :)

Doug, I watched the video and read the story. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! Good for you and Hurray for the Swamp metalmark!

That is cool, Doug

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

Spo- I want to see the interpretive dance on YouTube.

Tony - Great to hear from you again. Thanks for stopping by.

Cedrorum- You should try it for the RCW. It seems to be working for the metlamarks- we're getting eggs.
