Shot in the dark

At 11 a.m. today Assemblyman Pedro Nava, D-Oxnard, will hold a press conference in the State Capitol’s Room 1190 announcing his new bill that would ban the use of lead shot in state wildlife areas.

“The science is increasingly clear that lead shot poses a real danger to bird populations on these lands,” Nava said in this press release.

Yes, Assemblyman, lead shot does indeed pose a real danger to birds — especially when it’s fired at them.

    I see that you’ve given up all pretense of being an independent investigative watchdog and instead are content to bask in the glory of your conservative hackery. I had hopes that CalWatchdog would actually produce some investigative reporting of value to help fill the void that has been created by the demise of the Capitol press corps. Now I know that you’re more interested in posting sophomoric taunts than in doing the hard work of investigative reporting. Glad you cleared that up for me.

    Where ya’ been, old habits die hard? From the very beginning, these people have been toeing the Rabid Right line nearly all of the time. They are being paid to report on all the bad things government does. Their jobs are to dig up ammunition for the zealots whose goal in life is to shrink the size of government so they can “drown it in the bathtub.”

    These are obviously good, talented writers who love their families and put money in the collection plate at their churches. If CalWatchDog was truly a non-ideological, non-partisan “investigative watchdog”, it could be a really valuable addition to the Capitol scene. Sadly, such is not the case. This “dog” is blind in one eye–the right one, of course.
