The Dilemma of Federal Land Exchanges
There is no hunger like land hunger, and no object for which men are more ready to use unfair and desperate means than the acquisition of land.
 Gifford Pinchot, Chief of the U.S. Forest Service, 1898-1910
You chaps who are in favor of this conservation program are all wrong. In my opinion, the proper course to take with regard to [the public domain] is to divide it up among the big corporations and the people who know how to make money out of it...
 Richard A. Ballinger, Secretary of the Interior, 1909-1911
The most frightening part of my job is land exchanges.
 Pat Shea, Director of the U.S. BLM, 1997-1998
