We Are All Dave McKenna XLVIII

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Here's your daily link to Dave McKenna's brilliant "Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder," which we'll be posting until Snyder's dumbass libel suit behaves like foot fungus doused with tough actin' Tinactin.

Last month, we linked to a story about a good Dan Snyder who gets confused for the bad Dan Snyder and takes stick for it at his Blockbuster. Today, another Dan Snyder is making news. He's a landowner in the Adirondacks who is locked in a nasty tussle with his neighbor, The Nature Conservancy. He might even take legal action. Sound familiar? Hold on. The mountainous Dan Snyder has a stream running through his property and claims Nature Conservancy logging has dumped enough sediment in the water to endanger the local brook trout.

"I tried to warn them about the streams," Snyder said.

Snyder has been at odds with the Conservancy since last summer, when he said he contacted them with concerns about the logging operations taking place near his property and about the potential for damaging the trout stream. He has also written letters to the editor that were published in the Enterprise with similar concerns about the streams on his property. The letters included harsh criticisms of the Conservancy as a national operation.

Snyder has also admittedly trespassed on the Conservancy's lands to investigate the forestry operations, something the Conservancy has asked him not to do for both legal and safety reasons.


This is a muddy situation, but Dan Snyder of the Adirondacks appears to be a good Snyder. If he hasn't been mistaken for the bad Snyder yet, we're happy to make the distinction:
