Link of the Day

A year or so ago, an article appeared in the Arizona Republic comparing Old Westerners vs. New Westerners. Writer Jim Stiles, publisher of the Canyon Country Zephyr in Moab UT, declared: "...a conflict of cultures. On one side stand the 'New Westerners,' mostly urbanites who consider themselves environmentalists, but whose connection to the land comes through recreation. On the other side are the 'Old Westerners,' most of whom live and work in small rural communities and make their living from the land." His rather sardonic article points out the contradictions in attitude and behavior of both groups -- and is well worth a read up here in our little boutique mountain town that used to be so Western. For the text, go here.
