Our land


I grow tired of hearing news bites about people or industries “standing up to the government” regarding land use without accurate information (“Checking in on Cliven Bundy,” HCN, 4/27/15). Cliven Bundy is nothing but a mooch and a thief. The public lands are owned by every American citizen, and we pay to have government representatives care for and oversee those lands as we choose. Bundy didn’t buy that land (i.e., pay taxes for owning it, or spend money maintaining it), and he doesn’t even want to pay a piddly minimal fee for using “our” land. He should be in jail.
