Montana's dirty underbelly


What an outstanding story (HCN, 9/19/11, "Lost Opportunity").  I moved to Montana eight years ago and have seen only snapshots of the full picture. This story is a well-balanced portrayal of a rarely seen, dirty underbelly here in Montana. It avoids the simple sound-bite friendly rhetoric that too often dominates discussion of environmental issues in the Big Sky State. Made a subscriber out of me!
