A friend calls it, "the revenge of the robber barons"...

Sadly, it takes a lot to get stoical North Dakotans to stand up and speak out.  I'm hoping this will do it.

An oil company has staked out an oil pad less than a mile from the site of Teddy Roosevelt's Elkhorn Ranch cabin.  The Trib has the full story here.

Thursday morning at ten, I'll talk about it on SuperTalk 1270.  If this concerns you, as I believe it should, I invite you to call, at 701-663-1270...
