[pct-l] Marathons in the Wilderness

We disagree as to fact. I see clearcutting and the distruction of old growth
forest. I see the underfunding of the wilderness areas. You see something
else. Ok, we disagree. What's new?

But Tom, somebody must have liked the way the way the 1964 wilderness act
crafted or it never would have been enacted. I think its exclusionary 
provisions have far more popular support than you seem to think, including 
marathoners on this list. I have no real beef with runners. To each his own,

but there is a time and place for everything. Look at how many people are 
opposed on principle to drilling in an artic wilderness that 99.9% of them 
will never see even though it would possibly save them money. On principle 
alone! Remarkable!
