How About A Hearing For People?

Assemblyman Wesley Chesbro is having a hearing on the endangered Coho salmon.  The title of his news release is 'Hearing:  Coho Salmon on the Brink'.  We thought it would be revealing to substitute the words California businesses/businessman in the place of Coho salmon in his news release.  There is so much concern for the fish, but not too much for the people who create the jobs and pay most of the taxes.  We rewrote the article below the original article for our and your amusement.  It would be funny if it weren't so true.
