Um, is anyone else suspicious that the administration’s order to GE to dredge PCBs out of the Hudson River might be a ploy to get Superfund overturned in the Supreme Court? I mean:

The Bush administration ordered tons of PCBs
removed from New York’s upper Hudson River, which set in motion
Tuesday one of the largest dredging operations in the nation’s

… “We are going forward with this important cleanup,” EPA
Administrator Christie Whitman said.

… The federal Superfund law, under which the dredging is being ordered, is largely immune to lawsuits. However, GE has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court challenging the constitutionality of the Superfund law itself.

It seems likely somehow, but maybe I’m just paranoid.

Also, I’m a bit tardy, but it’s a huge bummer George Harrison died.
