Sic Semper Tyrannis

In my inbox:

Steve Sanetti, writing in the Washington Post about America's real conservationists:

Today, every state has thriving game populations in habitats that sustain hunted as well as non-hunted species. It's a richness of life that many Americans enjoy regardless of their environmental persuasion. Yet most also take it for granted, unaware of the mechanisms that sustain this public resource. They see more wildlife every year but are oblivious to why that's so.
That paragraph appears about mid-way. I want so bad to post the ending, because it's just that good, but that would give away who the real conservationists are.

That is, if you haven't already guessed.

Anyway. Whether you've guessed or not, do yourself a favor and read the whole thing.

By the way, this was forwarded to me by my friend Luke, who, if life were fair, would be writing his own blog on politics, outdoor sports, and the finer points of offensive line play. But he doesn't, which leads me to conclude that life's not fair.

But then, you'd already guessed that, too.
