Hundreds of illegally grazing cattle were round up, prompting a militia of heavily armed cowboys to assemble against a heavily armed federal force in the middle of the Nevada desert. Ranchers prepared to fight for their property in the name of state sovereignty. This is not the beginning of a Spaghetti Western or a nineteenth century history lesson; this happened just last week, 80 miles out of Las Vegas.

But why keep on buying single use plastic water bottles time and time again?
