    I must admit, I'm pretty impressed that they were able to stop the project to help a spider, and not something more traditionally cute or pretty. Further impressed because of the spider's name. "Horrid ground weaver" isn't something that inspires conservationalist attitudes. Even if it's a very rare animal, people don't usually care about spiders.

    Excellent news. As a new Devonian, I signed the petition this spring.
