Or, perhaps the thought of a major earthquake in the Tetons is not nearly as sexy as a supervolcano eruption

1/8/09 Is Yellowstone's 'super volcano' about to blow up? (by Thijs Westerbeek van Eerten Radio Netherlands)--looks like they fell for the hoax! They actually quote Chris Sanders on this; the person behind this "evacuation" nonsense. Go down to Jan. 2 below to see my initial reaction to seeing this posted over the internet. And, the person I blasted for reporting it still doesn't think he meant it as a hoax; no doubt she doesn't since she was naive enough to believe it and pass it along in the first place

1/7/09 In 2009, hippies carry the torch of freedom ... (by Rusty Shackleford MT Pundit)--Mr. Shackleford's cruel comments about a very nice and committed young man that I met only on Monday and the typical ad hominem nonsense that activists are generally faced with, are neither here nor there, though woefully ignorant about the movement and its participants. Is what's happening to the buffalo unjust? Should people be speaking out against it while trying to change policy? And, if you can't give a cogent argument why not, then you have no additional business tearing down those who answer yes to those questions. What posts like Shackleford's point to is that the fight for buffalo certainly isn't about brucellosis, but it's not always about controlling grass, either. It's about fighting through nonsense and mean-spiritedness like this.

1/4/09 Yellowstone or bust! (by The Guignard Family)--not true that the only way to enter Yellowstone in winter is with a guide; people forget that the North Entrance remains open year round to automobile traffic; there are also other trail access points on the edges of the park to snowshoers and skiers.
1/4/09 Kicked out of Yellowstone (by Wendy)--she's kidding about that
1/4/09 Just asking! (by John Shuey)--has some religious questions at the end regarding the volcano; don't get me started on teleology--it never settles much of anything; theists see it one way and atheists the other but simply looking at the world's events won't settle the issue of God one way or the other

1/2/09 Yellowstone: eq swarm continues; a precursor? (by Elizabeth Prata)--as for me, over 300 unique visits here today and almost 1000 hits; that's a record for this hidden corner of the Web; by the way, as to the comment below on record snowfalls, our snowfall has been about average
1/2/09 Is "no news" really "good news"? (by Grandiose Verbosity)--alarmists have a tendency to try to tell you they aren't alarmists; here is a case in point--and as for a lack of new information in mainstream and other media, this person hasn't been reading the news stories that you can find here. I've rarely been flooded by more articles on a story so relatively underwhelming. Much more major stories on what's happening in Yellowstone often receive scant attention, sometimes none at all even by local media.
