Wyoming apparently got a bad “homophobic” rap, in the much-publicized death of Matthew Shepard. In The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard, the author documents how Shepard’s death was at the hands of another man with whom he’d had sexual relations, and was about retribution in an illicit methamphetamine deal gone bad, rather than “gay bashing.” And it is now clear that his murderers were not strangers. They knew Shepard well. And now we learn that one of him knew him in the Biblical sense.The lesson in all this: Don’t take mass media reports at face value. Their reporting is often driven by political agendas and social engineering goals.

A great north-central Idaho flying video from Ttabs: Just Another August Morning. Disclaimers: The haze (atypical) was from some forest fires. No animals were harmed in the making of this film. But one was shaken up bit. The pilot notes: “Recorded in mid-August. I departed Elk River Idaho and for a while, headed into the Clearwater Mountains and the north Dworshak Reservoir to do a little scouting for elk. I then headed to the west where I hit the vaulted wheat fields around Kendrick, Idaho and proceeded SW to Lapwai Idaho where I began a climb up to the Camas Prairie and finely landed at Craigmont Idaho for a break. “

They are located in Rexburg, Idaho.
