The biggest presidential land set-aside in almost 20 years was a sneak attack.” Apparently our good senator cannot distinguish between acts of destruction and acts of preservation.

Especially Orrin Hatch, who is quoted as saying he is discouraged that members of Congress who don’t live here want to protect this amazing state.

If he does, it will be a good end but a bad means. When the president created the half-million-acre Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument in New Mexico in May, he said he wasn’t done using the 1906 Antiquities Act, which grants him the power to create monuments without any role or input from either Congress or the states.
