All kidding aside, this is probably a good czar to have. Asian carp are a threatening invasive species that eat huge quantities of plankton, a critical food source for much of the natural marine ecosystem. They’re breeding rapidly in the United States with no natural predators to keep the population in check. Much like the Zebra Mussel, which invaded the Great Lakes and much of the central United States, they could do serious damage to the regional fishing economy.
This seems like the type of thing that czars ought to be appointed for. Mr. Goss will be useful in coordinating among the various state and federal regulatory agencies that need to cooperate to solve this problem. Nor is there any possibility that someone with such narrow authority will usurp the responsibilities of legislators or cabinet members. I just wish that the Obama administration had more czars like this one and fewer czars attempting to run the automotive industry or regulate the compensation of bank executives.
