Everglades restoration: Can this marriage be saved?

Posted in The Miami Herald Sun, Nov 27, 2011 The Everglades is in danger again. This time it is not from a drought, hurricane or other act of nature. It is not from some imminent encroaching development. It is from the 2011 Florida Legislature and its cascade of damaging legislation which threatens to bring the three-decade-long effort to save the Everglades to a halt.
