    it is a great piece, he illustrates the plan very well.

    This is an excellent assessment; he might as well have been talking about Wyoming’s wolf population reduction/re-extinction plan as well.

    This column should be distributed widely.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
