<< I also criticized Brian for failing to take advantage of a truly unique 
opportunity to say something of value on behalf of the scenic trails. He 
didn't.  >>

Actually, he did.  This is an educational opportunity for those who may not 
understand the nature of the media animal.  I'm disappointed but not 
surprised by articles such as the one in the Nov. 12 U.S. News & World 
Report, which contained nothing of substance.  I listened to the phone 
interview from which this piece was fabricated, and it simply illustrates 
that a reporter will ask the questions he chooses to ask and print the 
answers he chooses to hear.  

The beauty of these trails and their value as an irreplaceable resource in 
need of preservation, protection and maintenance, are things that Brian 
considers important but that some publications clearly do not.  In short, 
your criticism is misdirected.
