    Chris,

    Do you just use plain sea salt on your popcorn, or kick it up a knotch with some Emeri's?

    I'm already done with my popcorn (it was sea salt) and have moved on to this becoming a drinking game.

    I got all CSI recently on one of the dead harbor seals that wash up at pt. defiance occasionally and noticed what appeared to be a bullet hole in its head, entrance and exit. it was also slashed along its belly.
    had a couple indians tell me about shooting seals that learned to get salmon from the gill nets. apparently the bleed like crazy.

    My thought exactly was .....isn't this a native netting area...hmm makes you wonder what the possibility that they'll actually never find out who is really responsible for this. Apparently there's a reward being put up by Sea Shepard, even if they do find someone responsible - they won't prosecute "popcorns" - because it's their right to harvest 1/2 catch. Maybe whoever is involved couldn't distinguish between salmon and sea lions.....things that make you go hmmm

    Actually I hardly eat any salmon (I think fish tastes horrible), but it tastes a whole lot better than seal
