Classless comments from Alaska congressman

ep. Don Young (R-Alaska) suggested Thursday that the solution to homelessness is wolves.

Young made the comment during a House Natural Resources Committee hearing during an exchange with Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. He was arguing that gray wolves should be taken off the endangered species list, criticizing the National Park Service and his congressional colleagues who seek to protect the animals.

“How many of you have got wolves in your district? None. None. Not one,” Young said, calling the gray wolf “a predator.”

Colorado should seriously consider his offer – not to eat homeless people, which is ludicrous, hyperbolic and stupid on any number of levels – but instead to manage an out of control elk population.

Logical conversation, of course, is not a realistic possibility with Mr. Young and those of his ilk, so we can hope people recognize this and try and make progress while ignoring stunts like this.
