    LEO's on I66

    This afternoon about 5:30pm i was OCing in my car on 66 just past Centerville going west, I saw two LEO's get back into their unmarked cars. They where wearing forest service green shirts and pants. I haven't seen this before and wanted to know who they are. Has anyone else seen this? Thanks.

    Maybe the forest service has decided to keep an eye on the bears?

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Hmm.

    I was OC-ing in my bathroom when I used Secret antiperspirant. I'd like to know that though it's strong enough for a man, but made for a woman, do your women really smell that bad, or are your men buying women's deodorants just because they can?

    Oh, and on topic - Forest Rangers, perhaps going to SWAT training in a borrowed squad?

    All joking aside, I didn't get close enough to identify the department. If it was a couple of conservation officers, do they have the authority to do regular traffic stops on an interstate or can I tell them to go pound sand?

    Yep, they do....you can thank Wilder for that!

    FWIW though, unlike other cops, they are expected to maintain a higher level of professionalism.

    I was talking to Bob Duncan, whom I have a tremendous amount of respect for, about complaints against his Conversation Officers...during the General Assembly last session.

    He takes a personal interest in them and wants to know when they step out of line. He also likes to know when they get it right too.

    Well, I'm all for "having a conversation" but really? Just kidding, of course.
