For years, the U.S. Forest Service has documented problems with the Rainbow Family.

From the Casper, Wyo., Star Tribune: "U.S. Forest Service officers pointed weapons at children and fired rubber bullets and pepper spray balls at Rainbow Family members while making arrests Thursday evening, according to witnesses.

" 'They were so violent, like dogs,' Robert Parker told reporter Deborah Stevens of the libertarian-oriented, Round Rock, Texas-based We the People Radio Network after the incident."

The story got me thinking about our talk last week with a Forest Service person who wasn't exactly looking forward to another Rainbow Family confab.

It's the BPP's Ramble.
