PLF's Jonathan Wood on Stossel tonight, talking prairie dog win
Fox Business Network’s John Stossel devotes his program tonight (at 9pm Eastern) to the “Control Freaks” in government. I join Stossel to discuss PLF’s recent victory in the prairie dog case, on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Property Owners, one of whom joins me. Regular readers will recall that federal bureaucrats acted very much like control freaks when they asserted the authority to control everything — including building homes, starting businesses, and protecting sports fields, airport runways, and a cemetery from a barking, tunneling rodent — in a small region of Utah to protect the Utah prairie dog. I’ll have some further thoughts here on the PLF Liberty Blog after the show airs.
