    It's interesting what happens to land when left alone. The DMZ in Korea has become a veritable wildlife refuge because no one is allowed to enter.

    Disclaimer. I only know this from news articles. But it makes sense.

    EG, et al: Frank and Deborah have indeed spent considerable time on the Great Plains, including at some racuous meetings in Nebraska, where there is a lot of unvoiced respect for them. They spoke at K-State earlier this month, at the invitation of a former governor of Kansas. They have never advocated condemnation of land or triaging communities. They have simply pointed out what is in fact happening and suggesting making lemonade out of the lemons! Nobody has actually thought harder or, IMHO, better about the Great Plains since Carl Kraenzel (and if you don't know who Carl was you don't know anything about the history of the region) and my own work in NE made it clear to me that the debate and, yes, the anguish they stimulated has been healthy and helpful for residents of the region.

    Noted and I guess I was a tiny bit over the line. Yet, I feel no shame. But I promise to play slightly nicer with our resident expert as he "Clavens" away on all topics.

    Yes, what Guap said. I'll behave.
