    Is there any reason for the interest and funding for finding DNA for the Hay’s Spring amphipod other than opposition to Maryland’s Purple Line?

    Honestly, until the various Chevy Chase towns/parts of Montgomery County adopt restrictions on pesticides and herbicides like, say, Takoma Park has (mass transit *obviously* is a much greater danger to species than all the insecticides put on lawns and golf courses…), science and other journalists should investigate backstories before wringing hands over, say, Hay’s Spring arthropods.

    In the interest of transparency, I live in Takoma Park and am a strong supporter of the Purple Line.
