Bob Alston helped me see a connection I missed when he posted an article from the Fort Worth Star Telegram about the pond keepers reaction to all this, only to realize this is the doing of Senator Glenn Hegar, who, guess what, is on the Sunset Commission that convinced Congress to mandate the TPWD!
This is the guy ya'll need to write, fax, e-mail or interview with:
Please remember to be courteous, respectful and mindful of the senator's time. Thank you!
"You are much better off with no numbers than meaningless ones. The minute you believe numbers uncritically, that is, without understanding how they're calculated and how well they measure whatever they're supposed to measure, you will generate a breed of employee who will produce numbers and not results. Your data-processing system will then serve not to describe reality but to lie about it."
