John Brummett has an idea worth talking about:

If Game and Fish is going to allow gas drillers to carve up land purchased with public money for natural purposes -- thereby spitting on the notion of conservation -- and doesn't intend to share a cent of its newfound gas riches with other public purposes, how about we take back half of the "conservation" sales tax we gave the agency several years ago?
