41. A word to those making the "keep your powder dry" arguments

Presumably you thought that Rachel Carson was a silly alarmist twit for warning about avian extinctions due to overuse of pesticides. After all, lots of those extinctions never happened. I'm sure you would argue that people getting upset enough to get laws passed regulating pesticides had nothing to do with the recovery of some of those bird populations.

No? In that case, I certainly hope you see the analogy with defending our lifeline New Deal programs.
