The Corps of Discovery had sustained themselves with a diet dependent upon buffalo, along with antelope, deer and a little bighorn sheep. After nearly starving to death crossing the Divide, they had to change their diet to fish, which had an adverse effect on their systems.
As for Fremont, he was a reckless, irresponsible meglamaniac bent on gaining notariety and prestige, putting his men in perilous situations, and getting totally lost at times. A number of his men sacrificed their lives in the name of his infamy.
I did not find this piece (of_ _ _ _) a total waste of time. Who could get all the way through it? Not that it was a just a vainglorious attempt at a parody, but geez, Dan...if you want to learn about sentence structure and mechanics in order to make it halfway readable, go back to the second grade.
Oh, no! I hope the Missoulian doesn't get rid of their ONLY three far-right, out in space right, subjective syndicated columnists. We wouldn't want to look beyond cultural barriers or anything that would cast a different perspective on issues. We all know that everything and everything that President Obama does is wrong, and George, Rich and Thomas make that clear and not much of anything else. So why have any other views from other syndicated columnists who might make worn-out rhetoric less appealing? Good thing for libraries and limited reads of e-editions, or I might have to give the Missoulian a dime.
Labeling people with mental health issues as "criminals" or "crazy" show a lack of understanding, and "insane asylums" are totally outdated. Further, people with mood disorders, personality disorders and anxiety disorders can be provided with effective treatment to be functional in community settings and reside in homes similar to those provided to intellectually disabled people.
Man always finds a way to displace the topic at hand.
I would have been neutral on the issue...until I rode a bike. First thing I noticed the cattle went ape-schmitt. Biking in the wild certainly scares wildlife. We try to minimize recreational user conflicts. There is certainly a conflict between bikes and horses, but it is also a safety issue. But where bikers really don't have cohesion as a group, for the most part they have a total disregard for other users. Oh, a few bad apples? No, it's the same problem with snowmobilers...WFO. The more air going through your ears, the less common sense.
In my lifetime, there's always been chummy appointments of people unfit for the positions. I'm thinking back to FWP heads K.C. Kool and Wambaugh. I also found the comment about the mentality of the voters in Lake County interesting. Were these elected miscreants just "ordinary Joes" or just what was their trip? Happens a lot in Eastern Montana as well...especially when people vote straight ticket.
