Teton County and the Long View: Notwithstanding the joke about guides, that the only difference between a guide and god is that god doesn’t think he’s a guide, it matters that I've been a guide. http://ow.ly/zjdl8

Hope to see you Thursday, 6:30, Virginian. Meet candidates and hear my views on conservation (critical!); community character (yes! through consistent focus on Community First common value); county governance (open, focused, efficient). http://ow.ly/z51ug

Ever been abroad, unable to speak a lick of the local language, desperate to find a loo? Let alone order a meal, shop, ride local transit. Chinese have visas, $6,000 cash (on average) and want to visit our town. Let's welcome them. http://ow.ly/ybi4V

Economist's View finds another gem: 'Basic Social Institutions and Democratic Equality'
"Here is one of Rawls's early statements of the idea of a property-owning democracy in A Theory of Justice:
'In property-owning democracy, ... the aim is to realize in the basic institutions the idea of society as a fair system of cooperation between citizens regarded as free and equal. To do this, those institutions must, from the outset, put in the hands of citizens generally, and not only of a few, sufficient productive means for them to be fully cooperating members of society on a footing of equality. (140)' " http://ow.ly/xCopM

See the line that looks like a moonshot? China knows its air quality is dismal. It's doing something about it to the tune of $400 billion. I'm headed there on Friday to see what they've got cooking.
