Edit: ULUC Faces Uphill Battle

In its Friday editorial, the Coeur d'Alene Press focuses on three groups that are players in the uproar over the Unified Land Use Code including this one:

The second group includes ideologues whose conspiracy theories have wrapped their tentacles around this issue. They are taxpaying citizens of the county, so they have every right to be heard and their suggestions to be taken seriously, but that's the key. To these folks and their followers, the code is yet another manifestation of insidious governmental intrusion and control. Reasons for distrust vary, but a very loud few are trying to link the Kootenai County land use code to the United Nations' Agenda 21 - a sustainable development plan that many conscientious and scientifically grounded entities around the world have embraced. To these few critics, the county will never generate an acceptable set of rules, so officials would be wise to focus on the third group. Full editorial here.

DFO: Whenever I see the acronym ULUC, I think of the mystical kingdom in the Shrek tale: Duloc. Just sayin'.

Question: Why are some people in this county so paranoid?
