The town councilors of Hardin, MT think their brand new but empty prison would a great place to house detainees from Guantanamo Bay, if and when President Obama succeeds in closing the notorious military detention camp. But Montana’s congressional delegation, apparently responding to sharper-than-expected opposition to housing terrorist suspects on U.S. soil, has come down firmly against the idea. That in turn has prompted New York Times columnist Gail Collins (pictured at right) to wonder, when did Montanans become such a bunch of wimps? She notes, quite fairly, that New Yorkers live with terrorists all the time. Here’s one riposte to that idea, from Big Sky resident Betsey Weltner. What do you think? Guantanamo prisoners in Hardin, or not?
