Some questions about bison

  Dear HCN,

The Great Plains Restorative Council seems to have a worthy goal of letting the bison go free, but I've got some questions for letter-writer J. Manos (HCN, 9/15/97). To what degree is his organization influenced by political correctness? How will the farmers be compensated for the loss of their land? When herds of buffalo, elk or other wild game are culled by predators instead of man, is it still pathological?

To paraphrase Harry Truman, "It's the things you learn after you thought you knew it all that are worth knowing." It will be very interesting to hear what J. Manos has to say after he grows up.
