I can tell you one thing, so far, what I have seen and heard from the president of the American Farm Bureau Federation, Zippy Duvall, I like. I think the thing that makes him so qualified to do that very important job is the fact that he is both a person who has spent a lifetime in agriculture, but he is also interacted with business leaders at every level. When he came to Idaho recently, he talked about management of our federal lands. Listen to what he has to say and tell me if it doesn’t make absolute practical sense. “The mismanagement of our wildlife, the mistreatment of our ranchers out here because of the mismanagement of our wildlife and the lack of input from local people. I know these people, especially in the forest service, they are climbing a ladder. You might get somebody in here from Ohio or the Northeast to manage a particular area and they know nothing about this area. You’re the one that knows and there should be some way to have a communication level where you have some input as to how this is managed out here. And that is what I told the secretary of agriculture.
