Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom is correct.
Regulators should look out for this animal population especially in California where they are endangered and there is a ban on killing them. Unfortunately, I am told the ban is often breached in California by livestock owners.
By bragging and being photographed killing this beautiful animal, Daniel Richardson serves as a role model to encourage shooting them in our State on the sly. We need a person in charge in California who protects the Cats, wildlife in general. And to say he eats the meat is an embarsaament. I hope he is relieved of his duties and replaced with a protector. ASAP.

Pleasing column on Bill Safire after his passing. I agree with you, he was a mensch. He metaphorically and in fact had rumpled dignity in his demeanor and in his columns. His were opinions worth reading. I remember him and Scotty Reston middle and Tom Wicker on left, sort of a golden age of New York Times for me.
