Over the weekend, anti-government activists, some of them armed, shut down Interstate 15 near Mesquite. They were gathered to protest the impoundment of Cliven Bundy's cows by the BLM. The BLM contends Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees, and the agency had a court injunction to impound Bundy's cattle.

Saturday afternoon, the BLM released hundreds of cows back to Bundy, citing concerns about violence and the safety of federal workers.

So did Bundy win this round? And what happens next?
