    should be enshrined. . .the BLM serving at the behest of the American Cattlemens' Association. I could not have said it better. They sell off or lease off land too damn fast and I was told by others in the loop it's because they try and make do with a skimpy budget. Go figure. I also used to work with the Forest Service (GPS surveyor and topographical mapper, out of Prescott, AZ), and my boss once asked me what I would I rather see, as a choice: letting cows run free on the land or developers and such? Well, he had me there, but I think the BLM is playing that same lame card. I should have told him "Neither!" Protecting open spaces also means keeping the damn cows out, including the eco destruction to cryptobiotic soil and all other fragile ecosystems. . .all for the sake of fattening up the cows and then sending them off to you know where and what thereafter. Thanks for posting this juicy comment, Keith930.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
