Obama prize? New US wild horse & burro plan
TUCSON -- We had a good trip to the US Air Force Goldwater Range. Nice days in the desert.
Congrats to President Obama on Nobel peace prize, but is he the most deserving person in world?
I'm quoted in the Arizona Daily Star today along with US Rep. Grijalva on a new fed wild horse & burro plan: A Tucson environmentalist who comes down in the middle on this question is state Rep. Daniel Patterson, a Democrat who is also Southwest director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility. "There are big problems that wild horses and burros can do to native wildlife, but the big question is how do you deal with them? On one side some people say gun them down, others say do nothing. I believe they should be humanely managed."
