Anonymity

ANONYMITY….President Bush has agreed to create a huge marine protected area near Hawaii, which is great news. But check out this quote in today’s LA Times story:

“With a stroke of a pen, the president not only can accomplish the single largest act of conservation in U.S. history, but he can inspire the American public on the broader importance of our ocean and coastal environments,” said a senior administration official who requested anonymity.

Thank God for anonymity! Without it, how would brave truth tellers like this one get their message out?
