Fish and Game Commission Meeting - March 7 - Support Dan Richards
There are multiple articles circulating the blogosphere, newspapers, and even talk on the radio about this story of CA Fish & Game Commission President Dan Richards. Letters are being written and support is being shown. Even our blogs are garnering attention. I was quoted in the third paragraph from the bottom of this Press-Enterprise article and I stand by what I said.

The Hog Blog is also staying on top of everything and Phillip has a couple a excellent posts over there. Take some time and go read what he has to say. I agree with Phillip that Dan should not have acted out like he did on the John and Ken Show, but he is also standing up for himself and defending himself. Listen to the radio interview and judge for yourself (the embedded link is at the bottom of the page). I commend him for sticking up for himself, but true or not, he's doing himself no favors by making suggestions and allegations. 

Dan also needs to be clear about the Humane Society of the United States vs the Humane Society. These are two completely different organizations. Truly, they are. It's my opinion that Mr. Richards needs to stand up for himself, but not lash out at others until after the commission meeting. Take it all in, draft up the facts and prepare to defend your post.

I urge fishing and hunting supporters to attend the March 7 Commission meeting in Riverside to show support. The public forum leads off the meeting at 8:30 AM. The hearing is set for The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, San Diego Room, 3649 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside.

Show up early as there will no doubt be animal rights activists protesting outside before the commission hearing. Oh, and bring megaphones to drown out the protesters. Show up in blaze orange if you want. That way you'll be able to spot the supporters, but I don't think it'll be hard to figure out who's who.
