So when a longtime lobbyist decides he wants to become one of the elected officials his clients pay him to lobby, and he's called out on this when he signs up with a mining lobby that wants to gouge great big holes in the area's biggest scenic jewel and tourist attraction, to the RWRE editorial staff that's exactly the same as being beaten, castrated, doused with kerosene and set on fire while being hung by your neck from a tree.

Words fail me.

Editor's note: actually, they said "near lynching" which why I chose the example of James Cameron, who was at the last moment spared. But point taken.

Many are critical of those poachers in Africa that are killing elephants for their ivory and rhinos for their horns. It is so clear to us outsiders that the short term economic boom for a few will hurt or destroy the whole traditional, long term culture and tourism industry of many.

The frac sand issue has so many parallels to this sad situation in Africa.
