Terrible and sad that this isn't about fish or science.

"In recent days, biologists and U.S. Forest Service employees have rescued
hundreds of baby salmon and other fish stranded in puddles along the banks
the Klamath. But U.S. District Judge Saundra Armstrong said Friday there is
not enough
scientific evidence to prove the salmon need more water at this time."

When I was in school, a statistics professor told us about a student that
did a study on Christmas tree sales. The student had come to the conclusion
that tree sales increased significantly the weeks before Christmas then
decreased significantly on December 25. He had data, analyses, graphs, etc,
to support his findings. Wow-- good thing he had the science to back up
that revelation, huh?!
