news flash: volcano monitoring is kinda important
The Washington Post rightly takes Bobby Jindal to task for his attack on volcano monitoring, after Mt. Redoubt erupted and sent ash miles across Alaska. I'm not surprised a Republican would attack federal funding to prevent natural disasters, but I'm a little surprised that a Republican from Louisiana would do so. What's next, Bobby, cutting hurricane monitoring moneys for the National Weather Service?
