Posing as a Bidder, Utah Student Disrupts Government Auction of 150,000 Acres of Wilderness for Oil & Gas Drilling

A Utah Student disrupts the Bush administration’s fire sale of Utah public lands. Notice, also, that the first story below barely mentions the manner in which the lands went up for auction in the first place.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    My parents & I have been chortling with joy about this story. I’m planning to contribute some $ for his defense fund and/or to help pay for the land he bought.

    What I find amusing is that this kid now owes about $1.7 million; and then in the second article: “Actor Robert Redford has been among those speaking out against the sale of these lands.”

    I’m going to bet $1 that Robert Redford could cover the tab alone. So, where is he?
