      Ill informed and wild analogies.

      Bow season opened in many parts of the sierra's and hunters' were all over the JMT area near MTR etc the week of August 19th.  Thus hunters were active in the fire area too....if words matter so much to you try to use appropriate language and non inflammatory statements to get your point across.  Furthermore, if dragging someone in the streets and beating them to death equates justice, then lets start cutting off the fingers of the backpackers that used alcohol stoves in regulated areas too this year....

      Funny how this wasn't a political discussion until you -- in your indignation about things getting politicized -- turned it into one. The rest of us are looking for news, but we all know where that comes from . . .

      There will be a lot of politics around the cause of this fire.   The theory that it was a Hunter is one but they have not found this mystery villain.  For all we know this entire mess was caused by the anti-gun lobby. (I don't buy that either)

      As best we can tell there is no active firearm hunting season in that area at this time.  That would make the person who did this a POACHER.  A Criminal who should be taken to the streets and beaten to death.

      Calling the Poacher a hunter is the same as calling anyone who has ever had intercourse a RAPIST.  The act is the same,  one is Legal the other a crime.  If you are not OK with calling your father, yourself or your friends rapists then please do not lump hunters in with Poachers.

      Words matter in this political environment and we all have some responsibility to try to stop the madness.
