Know the West

At, not down!

  Dear HCN,

In the 12/20/99 "Hotline" column, HCN reported that "... at a Flathead forest meeting in Kalispell, conservationists were shouted down." While it is true that we were shouted at, booed, hissed and told to prepare to shed blood, we were not shouted down. Testimony by conservationists in favor of the Clinton roadless initiative outnumbered the antis by 2 to 1.
