Howdy folks.

I’ve been asked to write a regular column, giving the common-sense cowboy perspective on issues that often divide us. I welcome the opportunity to try and bring a little horse sense to our discussions. In so doing I vow that I won’t attack anyone personally, primarily because they have the God-given right to be as big an idiot as I am, or at least know facts that are different from the facts that I know. Nor will I engage in endless argument.

Jonesy is manager of a 256 acre ranch bordering Grand Teton National Park. email
