GREAT shot and even better quote! Might have to borrow it for the good quote section of my blog. So very apropos for the U.S. today and unfortunately there are too many will to gobble up the land and not enough who are willing to work the land, because you know, it's like work...

quotes such as that make one appreciate the public lands available to all of us. can you imagine if the grand canyon or yellowstone were privately owned with "no trespassing" signs?

There must be thousands, or hundreds of thousands of quotes along a similar vein as this; and hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of people who agree with the sentiment - why is that not a single person in Washington D.C. gives a damn to do anything about it?

I've heard Nero watched as Rome burned, I suppose those in Washington will do the same as the world starves.

@ CJ, the Washington folk will not only watch it burn, but they'll probably poor gasoline on it. It gives them a reason to point their fingers at each other and continue the blame game.
