Trickster's territory

Document Actions

The self-important folks of Greenwood Village need an emergency dose of irony -- and quick (HCN, 12/20/10)! Continuing that ignoble American tradition of forcing the indigenous off their land, they really can't complain when Mr. Trickster tries to take back what is rightfully his. I must say, Mr. Coyote is far more patient and understanding than we humans have ever been. If the "villagers" are so keen on paving over coyote habitat for their palatial mansions, the least they could do is behave with a little more forbearance and respect for other forms of life.
