5 million-a-year effort to save the condors discount the fact that each component of an ecosystem plays an important role in the survival of other species, including humans, Freed said.
For Freed, who served in the Army and worked at a host of odd jobs before returning to college in his native Colorado to study biology, his $40,000-a-year work with the Forest Service is the best job he's ever had.
Freed said he went to supervising city attorneys Bernie Brown and Susan Zimber for advice.
What they wanted me to do was dismiss the case without saying anything,'' Freed recalled.
To Clarke, slavery lacked a harsh racial dimension; it was an unfortunate and temporary legal circumstance which an economic transaction could terminate, and the freed person could merge into society.
