Your Saturday editorial made it sound like the General Land Office is just an innocent bystander to the sale of the 2,000 acres of prairie land and its ultimate destruction: “Just doing their job.” (See: Loss of Fort Worth Prairie Park sad, but not GLO’s fault”

In actuality, the GLO knew full well when it bought the land in 2005 what its future actions would be and still chose to doom what apparently is one of the last untouched prairies in the area. I’m certain that there were plenty of other properties available at the time for the GLO to buy and flip. They choose land that would maximize ecological loss to the people of the state.

I’m not a native Texan and this field of grass means little to me, personally. But I do know a Pontius Pilate act when I see one and no amount of hand-washing, on GLO’s part or the Star-Telegram, will get rid of the stain of this transaction.
