No land grab
Salazar rights a wrong policy

The Salt Lake Tribune

The reaction in Utah to Interior Secretary Ken Salazars rather low-key adjustment to a Bush-era no more wilderness policy for public lands has been, while not surprising, still a tad extreme.

Salazar announced that a seven-year-old agreement between former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt and former Interior Secretary Gale Norton would be treated going forward for what it was: an illegal usurpation of federal authority to protect public land.

Salazars order only returns to the Bureau of Land Management its rightful authority to declare qualifying lands as wilderness study areas and preserve it until Congress can decide whether it should be protected as wilderness.

I find it curious how Interior Secretary Ken Salazar can simply declare a long standing agreement that was the result of a law suit, and was the agreed to settlement by both parties as well as the judge, "Illegal".

Is he a Judge?
When was he appointed to the Bench?

Ahhh, yes.  The famous Lib Trib Dribble!  Not nearly as much fun as the Boot Scootin' Boogie, but a whole lot more dependable!
