[ft-l] Some ranblings on the use of our public lands.

It rather obvious that checks and balances have failed, when people can use
a long series lawsuits to block thinning for something like 25 years then I
don't see any balance. People's homes and lives are in danger but other
people would rather make a political point rather than help do the right
thing. Being an obstinate roadblock is not giving " the balance to forest
management as we know it today."

You folks keep saying you don't like Bush's plan but I yet to see one of you
quote something in the plan that you don't like. How about some real
objections rather than knee-jerk opposition. And again what about Daschle???
