This is not surprising in the least. It's not like they weren't warned.
And of course they were warned again.

Log exports was short sighted. Focus should have been on the Boat Haulout facility.
The lawsuit against Leucadia was borderline moronic.

Maybe George Zimmerman did it.
Where's Al Sharpton when you need him.
