I read that Obama has an approval rating of only 27%. One should keep these ratings in proportion. I'm not inclined to give Obama a positive approval rating, but I much prefer him to any of the prospective or recent Republican presidential contenders.

Admittedly, though, the president's performance is often disappointing. For example, The other day I read that he's approved use of sonic cannons to map the ocean floor off our east coast — a step toward opening Atlantic waters for oil drilling. Sonic cannons are painful and injurious to marine life, particularly cetaceans.

Who cares? Anyone with any empathy for fellow intelligent creatures. This would not happen in an enlightend socitety.
