    Good report Ralph, thanks for the link.

    It is really good to finally see Sportsman as well as others and the organizations that represent them taking a stand against the devistation that has been occuring, and standing up to this administration.

‎"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."
