Strange, even for Maine

From the American Heritage Dictionary:

"protect - to keep from being damaged, attacked, stolen, or injured; guard"

"develop - to cause (a tract of land) to serve a particular purpose"

From the Main-Land Development Consultants, Inc. website:

"Bridging the Permitting and Regulatory Process"

The owner of MLDC, Inc. is Darryl Brown, who has just been nominated by Paul LePage, Maine's new Republican Governor, to be commissioner of Maine's Department of Environmental Protection. When he was a legislator, Mr. Brown received a "zero" rating from the Maine League of Conservation Voters for his environmental voting record. His company is the lead developer in the newly approved Oxford casino.

Quite remarkable. What's the saying about the fox in the chicken coop?

The once and future lane...writ large.

Maybe you could tell the Gov. to kiss your collective butts. Seems to be lingo that he'll understand...
