Fred,

I know. They built the dams and the irrigation canals to entice farmers to move there. Now the farmers have no water, the river has no water, and the Tribes have no water. But the sucker fish that the one Tribe started to us because the salmon couldno longer make it to their land gets water.

I sure wish the Bureau of Reclamation (what a misnomer) never came into being. They and the Army Corps of Engineers never saw a dam they didn't like, no matter how dumb a place to build one.
