    Doug Honnold is a formidable advocate who opened strong in the first half hour but had no case at the end.
    The court room looked like an eighth grade dance; girls on the left side of the room boys on the right.

    I hold solid on my prediction …no temporary injunction.

    The left and it’s stakeholders were part of the 100 wolves in 3 recovery area for 3 years process from the onset.
    Too late now.

    Ms Williams for the State of Montana ,Siedman {NRA, SCI} Lee {SFW } and Bloomquist{MSGA , Mt. FBF and FOTNYEH } were absolutely brilliant.

    Honnold choked after they made their arguments.”

    OOPS… You’re not the only one who “blew it” Rocky!

    Well, brilliant is as brilliant does.

‎"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."
