Last night in Red Dead, some of our gang journeyed outta bounds. Here's a collection of my highlights (taken by me, @ianmaclarty and @GhostTownGoldie): pic.twitter.com/PtFhj1Fx5j— Kalonica (@Kalonica_) June 22, 2019

There were areas where the unfinished geometry formed interesting jagged shapes pic.twitter.com/PeR4JPr4tH— Kalonica (@Kalonica_) June 22, 2019

Who Gets to Own the West?
A new group of billionaires is shaking up the landscape.
In the last decade, private land in the United States has become increasingly concentrated in the hands of a few. Today, just 100 families own about 42 million acres across the country, a 65,000-square-mile expanse, according to the Land Report, a magazine that tracks large purchases. Researchers at the magazine have found that the amount of land owned by those 100 families has jumped 50 percent since 2007.
