There you go. Somebody needs to catch that minnow, put it in a fish bowl, have a tiny bite of sushi or relocate it to another location overrun with minnows. Call it a Delta Smelt all you want but a minnow by any other name is still fish bait.
California lawmakets lost their common sense years ago...but they are now in a position of rationing water to save one minnow at a cost of $250,000 a year. Heaven forbid those California idiots would ever drink tap water (besides there not being enough).
So Nestle will raise the cost of the bottled water, CARB has run trucks out of the state so fast the cost to haul it to the stores has increased and your sole surviving minnow will be dead in less than a year. End result will be you will be paying $6 a bottle for water and somehow convince the lawmakers will convince the public they did a good thing.
They must take a class to learn how to not use any common sense or lack of common sense must be a requirement to hold public office.
