I'm A Lumberjack And I'm OK

      The White House once again strikes a blow against environmentalists. Bush announced yesterday that there would be new streamlining processes put into place to allow logging in national parks and grasslands. These new procedures will give authority to log to regional directors and reduce the time it takes to get approval to do so. Environmentalists claim that this new directive is an attempt to get rid of or bypass the National Environmental Policy Act. To get an idea as to how this all falls out, environmentalists are outraged by this and commercial loggers are celebrating.

"Until now, you had these voluminous plans that were never implemented," said Michael Goergen, executive vice president and CEO of the Society of American Foresters. "Now they can say, here's the plan, watch us implement it, and watch us report on the results. It's a very exciting approach, one with a solid environmental management system."

      I think he has been hit with one too many trees.
