In his Merced Sun-Star column, Mike North on Hunting, Mike North writes: "Facebook is a versatile tool that can be used in a lot of constructive ways, but unfortunately, many use it to put their own stupidity on display. Over the weekend, I was sent a link on Facebook about the California Fish and Game Commission's newest president, Dan Richards (pictured), who has endured a barrage of unwarranted criticism since taking the position. The condemnation, much of which has been stimulated through Facebook and other websites, isn't because of something he did that was scandalous, illegal or dishonest -- it's because he went hunting in Idaho and killed a mountain lion, which can legally be hunted in Idaho, unlike in California."
