Not fish and chips

When the Metropolitan Water District hosted a 20-person lunch in San Francisco celebrating passage of the 2009 water package, the district picked up a tab for $1,861.50, including four bottles of wine at about $55 each.  Jeffrey Kightlinger, MWD’s general manager, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that “it was important to mark the achievement with people, including several environmentalists, who helped make it happen.”

Comments one prominent environmentalist who DIDN’T help make it happen, “No wonder they don’t care about smelt – they’re eating Oysters Rockefeller – and having their ratepayers pick up their dinner check.”
