Art Kleiner of Butte LaRose is an avid environmentalist. It might not show right off as Art putters around his workshop, but years ago almost by accident he discovered he has a mission in life. Art is out to protect, to save, to house the endangered state bird of Louisiana.
Forget what they taught you in school. Forget that propaganda from the Nature Conservancy. You and I and Art know that the state bird of Louisiana is the mosquito. And art builds mosquito houses.
"They're endangered", says Art. "You can get one of them on your arm and slap it. You would see all that blood splatter. That's endangered! Suppose somebody came and slapped you like that!"
