D'oh!

Apparently our etc. column last week highlighting the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's online auction of forfeited and abandoned animal products backfired. Those ostrich-skin belts we had our eyes on? Well, someone drove the bid up to $40. Getting a bit out of our modest price range.

For anyone who didn't catch the column, profits from the agency's auction go toward education initiatives on the wildlife product trade and global conservation. Some money also goes to the National Eagle Repository in Denver, which supplies Native Americans with eagle parts for religious uses. All for a good cause, right? Just stay away from our damn belts, bidder "butch1." Sheesh.
