"They ain't going to do anything about those damn sea lions"

The Longview Daily News reports on the case of an Oregon man who shot a sea lion that allegedly grabbed a salmon off his fishing buddy's line. The article goes on to describe efforts by Congressmen Brian Baird, D-Wash., and Doc Hastings, R-Wash., to make "it easier to kill the most aggressive of the sea lions." In spite of this bipartisan effort, the convicted gentleman from Oregon quoted in the headline doesn't hold out much hope for the proposed legislation.
