Hello friends.
Anyone bored?  Looking for a serious article seeking some serious critique?


Here’s is a link to the latest article in a series, though I will condense 750 wrd, 500 wrd, maybe even 350 wrd versions out of it.

So if anyone is interesting in doing a little critique, well actually I prefer hard ball critique,

it would really help improve this, though with easily 30 hours into it I’m feeling pretty good about it…
that’s why I need a reality check.


And this one is important, it’s getting close to gametime.
Anyone game?

March 2012 UPDATE, and some history{1050 words}

The saga continues: “The Red McCombs’ Alberta Park Poker Game” {Yup, the one near Wolf Creek Pass, Colorado.}

It began back in the 1980s when a billionaire purchased some private land within the Saguache Ranger District of the Rio Grande National Forest. It was nice land, land the Forest Service had been eyeing for some time.

With those chips in hand Red McCombs saddled up to the public lands real estate table. . .

Well this has gotten interesting in the past week.
I now have a genuine Freedom of Information Act request being processed through the USFS to figure out exactly how the billionaire actually got original title to that land, since those records seem to have disappeared from the public record {or was never there}.
Ah, as much as I despise the Bush II Administration I know they are simply spawn of that fabled Reagan Administration - where this interesting little reversal occurred.

While fact checking the article in the previous post, I discovered something interesting.

The original 1986 Leavell-McCombs Joint Venture’s offer to trade Saguache District parcels for a chunk of Alberta Park near Wolf Creek Pass was rejected by the Rio Grande Forest Service.
Yet, that official rejection metamorphosed into an approval and the USFS cannot cite how it happened!

Well, I went and gave it my best shot and this time, as opposed to four years ago, I connected best I could.

Circulated ±2750 copies of a nice clean looking, pretty near 100% typo free Memes Courier and by shear blind cosmic giggledie luck, the first copy went directly into the hands of US Senator Udall, when I found myself alone with him and his wife in an elevator the evening before the Convention.

For what it’s worth here’s the final draft:

At least till the EIS draft comes out and then the fun really starts.  wink

I’m overdue to write this. On March 2, 2012, occurred the worst thing ever to happen to me: My hometown of West Liberty, in eastern Kentucky’s Appalachian foothills, was largely destroyed by a tornado. If I feel so devastated while not even living there, how much worse must it be for those who lost their very homes and livelihood.

WTF? Those are Joe Nickell’s words, taken from his blog on this site. What’s that doing here? (Spam bot?)
