One of the article's predictions already came true while the edition was at the printers: different federal judges have now given Yellowstone National Park officials different commands on how to regulate snowmobiles. The only way to clear up the differences is to go to a higher court, so a great deal more litigation is expected -- on both snowmobiling and coalbed methane.
On a different note, it seems irrelevant to the point I was making, but Karl Wenclas writes about Sunday's post: "We at the underground Literary Alliance are just letting people know that we did not post any anonymous reviews [about Tom Bissell's "Chasing the Sea"] on Amazon. (The Times reporter would've nailed us if we had.) We've always been completely upfront in our protests and such, and always sign our own names."
