Re: “Imperfect choice

In Victoria, BC, Canada, a similar debate raged a few years ago about a proposal to develop a shopping mall, downtown, that would consume an entire city block of elegant heritage buildings like the Merc. The solution, which didn't please everyone, but turned out way more successful than anyone hoped, was to recreate the facades of all the old buildings around the perimeter of the new. I invite you to Google the images of the Victoria Eaton Centre (or the Victoria Bay Centre as it is now called) to see how well it turned out. It's faux heritage, but it looks great none the less.

Re: “Slippery slope

Why not add a wilderness restoration tax to the price of each mountain bike? Or require a wilderness bike license for those who want to bike in a wilderness area? Far too many bikers have a self-righteous sense of entitlement when it comes to public property, so the best way to reach them is via their pocketbook.
And where do the custodians of the wilderness stand on this? Are they having difficulty understanding what 'mechanized' means? I'm sure they know the word 'sinecure'.

Re: “In for the kill

Maybe what is needed is a "Conditioned Taste Aversion" additive that will discourage humans from eating beef ...

Re: “It's every Montanan's land.

Possible solutions to the corner-crossing problem:
1. ask the landowner or landowners for an easement for a 4-foot wide public footpath across the corner.
2. expropriate the nine square feet needed to establish the 4-foot wide public footpath.
3. require the landowner(s) to provide access as a condition for leasing the public land.
