    I heard a rumor today that “big oil” has recently made a very large contribution to the National Cattlemen’s Association, presumably to get the ranchers to shut up about drilling on the range, among other things. I haven’t been able to confirm it anywhere. Has anyone heard anything about this, or might it be a baseless rumor?
