Re: Now it's my turn ... A sister's perspective

Perhaps someone could help me out here, and explain exactly what "Hang 'em High" MEANS in this context. What exactly does this petition...say? I guess where I get confused is that I've seen Mr. Younger and Sandy Strassman (and also several others who have also supported Jacob in terms of c...

Re: Must be credence to cougar claims

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what the rules/laws are about people actually shooting a cougar?

I ask because I fear that if the facts aren't clarified, we may actually have some people HOPING to drag a cougar's body in to the authorities the first chance they get.

What I just don't get, is that so many people can't (or won't) admit that they personally have the ability to seperate themselves from something they don't like. I could not say with honesty say that smoking is a good idea. It's a bad habit, and it's harmful to people's health.. whether it's a smoke...
