The lack of media attention and general public apathy about events in Oregon is to a great extent because the vast majority of the people know almost nothing about federal land ownership & mgt issues. In the same vein for most the very existence of something called “water rights” is an utterly foreign concept. Until such point as State governments out West start making an issue of these things or a national advocacy group arises the public will remain ignorant on the issues and media will ignore it.
