Map Maker Fired Over Arctic Chart a Cult Hero

Someone sent along This LATimes Story on Ian Thomas, that dude that got fired by U.S. Geological Survey when he posted a map of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge\'s caribou calving areas on a federal Web site. I\'m still not sure who to believe on this one.

It\'s a good story because they have a quote from Fred Stoss:

He became a cult hero because this is the story that everyone wanted to hear,\" Stoss said. \"There is urban legend growing out of this.\"
