'Argo' on a roll with big win at SAG Awards; Chris Brown investigated for possible assault; 'Hansel & Gretel' fetches No. 1 at box office. (Jan. 28)
Steven L: Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument covers a mostly ocean area north and west of Hawaii including Midway Island. As far as the area for the Battle of Midway is concerned, that area is already protected by international treaties. Considering the area of the monument an expansion would have no actual effect except as a political sop to "environmentalists (meaning lawyers)". Plus Obummer doesn't actually have the ability to expand the area without Congressional approval, but so far, Congress and the Constitution don't appear to sway him from illegal acts.
