Lovely Photos of the 2005 Babies
I just found an excellent collection of photos of the babies from 2005 at http://stats.pbase.com/dellybean/goslings. They are real beauties.
The people who took these shots and posted them are normal decent human beings behaving like the vast majority of people. The comments included on the posting are by that much more good people who love the world and the Charles River White Geese.
Regrettably we are dealing with a bunch of sickos. While the sickos are clearly a tiny minority, the sickos are very ruthless, very powerful and very destructive.
2005 was the first year in three years that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Department of Conservation and Recreation /Metropolitan District Commission did not poison the eggs of the Charles River White Geese.
For the last three years, the DCR through the developer funded Charles River Conservancy has poisoned every goose egg they could get away with in the first ten miles of the Charles River.
During the 2005 nesting season, the MDC through the City of Cambridge were starving the Charles River White Geese instead of poisoning their eggs. The Cambridge City Council got even worse.
The reprehensible Cambridge City Council voted twice in October 2005 to encourage the destruction of nesting materials along the railroad tracks.
Interesting, the Cambridge City Council is "neutral" when eggs are being poisoned BY THEIR FRIENDS. They are "neutral" when geese are being killed, and they ask the railroad to destroy nesting vegetation.
In fact, the sponsor of the motion to destroy nesting vegetation, Representative/ Councilor Timothy Toomey has publicly praised the sick Charles River Conservancy, the entity which runs around poisoning goose eggs. But Toomey is "neutral" except when he is starving the Charles River White Geese or on so many other sick things, and how dare anybody call the sick Charles River Conservancy a truly sick entity.
And the Cambridge City Council considers starvation attacks on the Charles River White Geese throughout their habitat since September 2004 business as usual. And they call their voting in two upzonings on Memorial Drive plus one or more along the railroad tracks either commendable or something they did not understand. And forget that they kept the Cambridge City Manager from telling them what is being done on Memorial Drive.
But the babies are beautiful. Decent people love the babies and the geese.
Cambridge pols, state bureacrats, and their friends run around calling themselves "environmentalists" and prove the opposite by their actions and their "neutrality" with a wink and a nod.
And the babies and the Charles River White Geese are beautiful, in a very sick city.
