For what it's worth dept., room 3,457

Happy to see Prineville's decision to violate their own procedures and yank the Sherman Alexie book is making the national news. At one time, 100 or so years back, Prinveville was the scene of one of the archetypal western stories: cattle ranchers versus sheep. Prineville was home to a group called "The Crook County Sheep-shooters Association." Of course nobody was ever busted for the hundreds and hundreds of sheep that were killed by the cattle-ranchers.

Last night we were discussing Prineville's glorious history of tolerance and intelligence with a friend of our's. She said, "Well, you know, they found a new use for sheep over there: wool."
