Huh. I thought that that was what the writer was talking about-saving animals and not turning the land into farmland. As for keeping land from being developed, I live near D. C. The vacancy rate for business property is 2-3 times what it was 4 years ago (oh-wait -Obummer). Why build something that won't be occupied(I know-crony capitalism)? And how do you keep a close eye on someplace you're not allowed to go?
So, you don't think it's possible to have honor in high places? My extended family would beg to differ. Who are you going to vote for since both candidates for president have been in high places and by your definition, are dishonorable and greedy.
