Now, for over 25 years I’ve lived an urban Western life. Stiles described me and my neighbors as "New Westerners." Although the dichotomy between "dude" and "local," and "new" and "old" always bothered me, I could never really define it. Stiles describes it flawlessly. And he is right: Entrenched positions about what is right for the "Current West" will do absolutely nothing to solve the many problems that we, new and old alike, experience. We all need to drop our preconceived notions of what is right and wrong, and listen to our collective wisdom to find workable solutions to safeguard our beloved resources.
