  1. Hey EHS Director, glad that helped out. Thanks for the compliment.<br /><br />I love the name of your &quot;Peakonomics&quot; blog. I&#39;m at work so I can&#39;t take the time to read it, but I&#39;ll be sure to check it out from home. Very clever tite–kudos to you!

  2. I am sure he is as concerned as much as me or more. In my years in environmental protection, both evasive species and ash bore went from being a regional problem to devastating levels.<br /><br />Next time you see him, tell him &quot;thanks&quot; from me. <br /><br />Their work is VERY under appreciated.
