Cowboy college

rich/ September 24, 2007/ World/

From Sam, this news of the cowboy master’s degree.

While I still have a lot to learn on the cattle front, I can’t help but think this program wouldn’t help me much. I can learn most of what I need on the internet…except for the whole horse part.

I seem to be on a Republican-bashing kick, but I can’t seem to avoid mentioning that the King Ranch, which is endowing the program, is adjacent to where Dick Cheney had his infamous shotgun incident. A few years back, I worked on a bird migration study on the Kenedy Ranch, just a few miles away from there. When folks say that everything is bigger in Texas, they aren’t exaggerating…both places would qualify as states unto themselves anywhere else.
