Heard Around the Nation 8

A word about this regular section: It contains only outrageous, outlandish, and disturbing pontification. Any sensible, progressive, or intelligent statement will be instantly punted into cyberspace. “After five years of leading cooperative conservation efforts and responsible energy development, Interior Secretary Gale Norton, 51…announced she will leave the president’s cabinet.” --*Gun Week,* in its editorial farewell to one of its heroes. “Cooperative conservation efforts”??? “Responsible energy development???” Huh??? Hello!!! Ralph Cramden’s Norton would have made a better secretary. (No, this was not an April Fool’s issue of *Gun Week.*) Hard to figure some of these gun types. They profess that hunting is a big part of their agenda, and yet they fervently support the most anti-wildlife, anti-habitat administration in our history. Can someone please explain it to me?
