Dear Readers,
Here's the list of all the cosponsors of the HORSE PROTECTION ACT
Some major presidential candidates are co-sponsoring it. Of course not all candidates can be co-sponsors, because they're not, or are no longer senators -- John Edwards for instance. However, I hope that the circulation of this list will encourage other candidates to state their feelings. SOON!

Feed Your Head (and the world!)

Dear Readers,
Want to help feed the world and increase your vocabulary at the same time? Go to:
ricebowl.com and you can begin NOW.
How does this work?
A computer guy helping his son study for the vocabulary portion of the SAT test designed this cool program and hooked up with the United Nations World Food Program and some generous sponsors.

All you do is look at the first vocabulary word & click on the answer that best defines the word.
If you get it right, you get a harder word. If wrong, you get an easier word.
For each word you get right, sponsors donate 20 grains of rice !

WARNING: This game may make you smarter. It may improve your speaking, writing, thinking!!!!

You can't lose...and it's really fun!

Silent Night, with Choppers

Today's News:
Bureau of Land Management officials said a lack of forage caused by drought makes it necessary to remove a total of 1,000 horses from herds in northeastern Nevada.

Dear Readers,
BLM's gift to Nevada's wild horses is terror and capture. To us, they give lies.
These gathers will take place not far from me and I can't stand the bloody excuses any longer. So these mares, colts and stallions will be stampeded through the snow by helicopters because of a "lack of forage caused by drought" ?
What about the thousands of cattle and sheep (and wildlife, but sharing comes naturally to them) still EATING on the range? Think they might contribute to the "lack of forage" ? Yes, the range is dry in places, but it doesn't much matter if your dinner plate is wet or dry if it's empty.
My readers know my feelings about BLM are mixed. There are many caring individuals within the Bureau, but they don't determine policy.
My readers also know I support traditional ranch families and their fight to hang onto a vanishing, valuable lifestyle. They care for the range. They have to; their livings depend on it.
That's not so for CORPORATE ranchers. Their millions of dollars are invested elsewhere, too -- in city buildings, in stocks of a sort with no beating hearts and businesses in other countries. Ranching reflects a small part of their wealth. Often they're in it for tax write-offs and they make life hard for small, struggling ranchers, then gobble up land that's been in families for generations.
Why are they allowed to breed thousands of head of cattle and feed them on over-used public rangelands?
BLM may be "rescuing" horses from starvation, but wildlife, including horses, wouldn't need human "help" if they weren't forced to compete with domestic livestock.

This year, America's wild horses won't sleep in Heavenly peace. They'll be standing over their foals, hiding in cold ravines, braced for the racket of helicopters, coming closer.

My best to those of you who care,

If you went to college HERE

Dear Readers,
My updated website Phantomstallion.com has links to three webcams not far from my home.
One shows the quad at the University of Nevada, Reno, and you can see what today (or any day) would be like if you went to school there.
One shows Virginia City, a restored old West mining town on the edge of the real Phantom Stallion's territory.
The last one is on the roof of a TV station and gives you a shot of downtown Reno.
Once in a while, especially on the Virginia City cam, it will look blurry and white.
That's snow!
Happy trails,
