Go On, Pilfer the Nest, I Dare Ya'

At last, an environmentally friendly use for landmines. Talk about your protected habitat. There are a couple of good lines:
Grant Munro, director of Falklands Conservation, says the boost to wildlife is a bit anecdotal since "it has really not been looked into, for obvious reasons."

"There is a risk that only 95 percent would be removed," said Falkland Islands Gov. Howard Pearce. "You would bring a sense of complacency to the community and increase rather than reduce the chance of injury."

Besides, he noted, "The environmentalists like them."

Now when was that last time you heard that said?
