Tidbits from the land battle

Just to give you an idea of what I'm working with, here's an excerpt of a post from one of my less literate cousins:

"As far as if we get money? I believe an count or set up in which no
cousin has to personally deal with the money is best and everyone gets their share of it. I do not know what that is call."

We don't know what that's called either, since it took several reads to decipher the info and another several reads to realize she's basically wanting to hire an accountant so that she knows no one is cheating her. Right? At least I think that is what it says. . . Let me be the first to reassure you, this really is over a bunch of land which has no means of irrigation, is hundreds of miles from anything resembling civilization, and is completely covered in rocks, stickers, mud, and sagebrush. I will do my best not to cheat her out of her fair share of the zero dollars it's bringing in hand over fist.

don't forget Animal Farm! You can figure out how to battle Large Oil Corporations with that book!

Then again, it could all be a case of self-deception. I know exactly what books you need for that as well! :)
