Wild, but Not Free

The plight of wild horses in the American West has generated such an outpouring of public response that there are some who suggest the reaction rivals what happened during the Vietnam War. Filmmaker Sylvia Johnson set out to document the complex mix of conservation and controversy and the end result is her new documentary Roaming Wild. We spoke to Sylvia about the process of making the film and why she chose the subject.

The Last Lap? Greyhound racing is a 100 year old tradition that should be a thing of the past, says Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society of the United States.

I just listened to the re-run of this show. I don't understand you guys. These are invasive species. Does the Everglades "manage" Burmese Pythons at some level? Or do they try to eliminate them entirely? Does Maryland try and keep 40,000 snakehead fish in their waters or do they try and eliminate them all? How about Zebra mussels? Shall we keep a few around because they're cute?

Very interesting article. I would love to read the book “Start with Why”, by Simon Sinek. I think he has taken a great topic to deal with. Teaching leaders to inspire others is a good idea to bring up a civilized society. Thanks for sharing. Keep posting.
