    Well all I have to say about that is, I hope he gets what he deserves, it would really funny if the judge was a woman. but lets hope they make him realize that his actions were wrong and will not be tolerated anymore.

    I am actually quite curious to know how much was said about wolves during the trial, and how much historical prejudices the jury pool had… anyone have access to transcripts?

  8. I posted the brief story


August 2008


‎"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
