2+2=5 in California

An appellate court in California has held that bumblebees are fish. . .

So this probably affects us out here in the ag fields.

It takes 35 pages of tortured logic in an opinion that reads like a parody, but the court concludes that bumblebees indeed are fish within the meaning of California’s environmental laws. I take it that all other insects, by the court’s logic, are also fish.I cite this decision as a warning to those who repose faith in our courts to check the excesses of the political branches.
