A presentation by James Taylor of the Heartland Institute at the House Resources and Conservation Committee on Thursday should be an embarrassment to every lawmaker who takes his organization seriously.

The Post Register's front page headline on Jan. 23's "Born Killer" was the most biased, derogatory and inflammatory statement about a young, female hunter (or any hunter) I have ever observed. The famous Jack O'Connor, now deceased many years, I am positive has hunted, shot and killed many m…
