Meet the New Asian Carp Czar

Another job saved but mostly created by the White House:

The White House said today it has chosen John Goss, former director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, as its Asian carp czar.

Goss described himself as a fisherman who is very concerned about the possible spread of the voracious fish into the Great Lakes. Goss has also served as executive director of the Indiana Wildlife Federation.

I live in the Great Lakes area and my family boats, fishes and swims on occasion in those waters, but because of the fact the Obama administration appointed Goss and he’s described as an “environmental activist” in most articles, I have a fishy suspicion this will only culminate in even more regulation of the private sector and the formation of the IBAC (International Brotherhood of Asian Carp).

And hey, who’s up for the uber-competent White House being in charge of reversing the flow of rivers?

In a call with reporters, Goss was noncommittal about whether there should be a permanent separation between the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes, reversing the flow of the Chicago River. He said he’s awaiting the outcome of a study by the Army Corps of Engineers, which is looking at whether such a reversal is feasible.

The fine line the Asian Carp Czar must walk is identifying the offending fish without profiling.
