    I live about an hour from the west entrance of Glacier. The proposed mining would also have affected nearby Flathead lake, one of the most beautiful and pristine lakes in the world.

    The bottom line here just might be that lots of very rich people have vacation homes on Flathead Lake. The Flathead Valley, from Whitefish down to Polson, is full of multi-million dollar summer homes. The people who own those homes own Congress as well.

    The Flathead's still on lists of "most endangered rivers," but maybe all that money and power will do what respect for the environment won't, and keep ths area protected and beautiful.
