It's hard for the number one thing on my mind not to be, "Will the comments be as thoroughly ignored as last time?" Even after PRNS discarded nearly a thousand comments opposing ranching, the opposition to ranching was still an avalanche burying the support comments, all of which were submitted by ranchers and ranch associations.
When questioned why the comments were ignored PRNS responded, "It's not a popularity contest."
On the other hand, after a letter to the PRNS staff from the PRNS Ranching association was revealed, it showed that the management plan the park drafted was essentially a mirror copy of the ranchers' request letter.
So, I ask the public, does it feel good to know that your comments mean nothing?
