Report says nation's wildlife refuges underfunded

    Several of my favorite East Coast refuges, including Brigantine in New Jersey and Chincoteague in Virginia, are suffering. VCs are barely open (not at all for primary weekend hours), infrastructure repairs have been shelved and staffers are hard to find, if at all. Pretty damn sad. Very sad.
