Last month, people around the world celebrated the 42nd annual Earth Day. But for Guest commentator Barry Grissom, the U.S. Attorney for Kansas, environmental stewardship is more than just a one-day-a-year job. While his office may be most-associated with prosecuting violent criminals, Grissom says it also works year-round to enforce laws that protect the environment.
