Those who affect to differentiate Trump from the Republican Party are fools selling liberty for one more cozy consensus between the rulers and those who lick their boots. Nothing tells the story quite so clearly as the history of voting rights in America, or, more accurately, the history of voter repression in America and the resistance to it. -- blj

 Yosemite is not Forks of Salmon.

Cell-phone towers in national parks have started a debate between the National Park Service, under the US Department of Interior, and rural regions dominated by national forests, under the US Department of Agriculture. The debate is between two unrelated cultures: urban tourists visiting the national parks vs. the rural residents of mountain regions, mainly on the coast and north of Lake Tahoe, traditionally timber and cattle economies but post-construction bust, now marijuana and cattle economies. These regions used to be called "the country" (as opposed to "the city").

 In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up! -- Kendra Pierre-Louis, New York Times, Dec. 28. 2017

 There is just nothing like dope for prophesy.

When it's cold and wet outside, your wood's dry, you have enough kindling, stew on the stove ... light up a dooby and make a prophesy. Or two. Then, as you get into the swing of the evening, make plans. It is very important to make plans in the winter time. Almost as important as forgetting them next summer when the prophesies, which were the basis for these plans, don't pan out.

 Mike De Lasaux, a forester with the University of California's Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources, said the state ideally would burn hundreds of square miles of land with surface fuels annually, but he praised any efforts to reduce dangerously overgrown forests. The current plan moved forward following a recent agreement between state and federal agencies along with environmental, logging and recreational interests. -- Weber, Associated Press, Dec. 14, 2017

De Lasaux works in Lassen and Plumas counties, where there is continual tension between private, state and federally managed forests and every time a fire starts, fingers start pointing. While it is possible that his prescription might work under ideal conditions in his region, we don't think much of it as a statewide idea.
