I haven't spoken to Tim for a little over a year, and he might not even remember my name, but when he and I worked together for Outback Therapeutic Expeditions, I spent a couple of weeks working with him day and night, trying to help troubled teens to quit doing drugs, getting in fights, sleeping around, and getting involved with gangs. He was a good instructor and he would never avoid doing what was difficult if he thought it was what needed to be done.
Now everyone knows that that is how Tim is. In case you haven't heard, some local troublemaker thought up an ingenious new white-collar brand of monkey-wrenching, and carried it out yesterday.

That troublemaker was Tim, and he's gotten such a good response that there's talk of raising the money to buy the $1.7 million worth of land that he bid on. Or at least the money to bail him out of jail. (He's facing felony charges.)
And if that doesn't work, there's talk of an Obama pardon. John Podesta, Obama's transition team leader, has been trying to prevent this lease anyway.
Well done Tim. Good luck to you.
(If a fund is created to buy Tim's leases, I'll post a link to it here.)
