Cheney to be guest of honor at American Museum of Fly Fishing-

Outdoor writer not happy about honoring the fish killer, former VP. On second thought, Mr. Cheney. By Ted Williams. Writers on the Range, High Country News.

In fact, Cheney loves to fly cast. I’ve always thought a Wyoming stream could be reserved for him alone, if it’s the right stream. I propose he be given sole use of Spread Creek in Grand Teton National Park.*

*Likely only folks that live in Jackson Hole or fish there will get this.

Quote

‎"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
