<< Tree Huggers International, once known as The Whole Mosquito Foundation,
division of the powerful WTH (Women with Time on their Hands) lobbying

Golly, Tom makes sense here! One of the most confounding things to me is how
ranchers, loggers, etc. who have worked hard for generations to maintain good
range, forest, etc. conditions so that there can be a "sustained yield" of
natural resources forever and who care a great deal about being able to pass
their forests and ranges on to their children in better shape than they found
them have been labeled as ogres and grinches by these far-out bleeding
hearts, and as people that would sacrifice their long-term welfare for the
immediate dollar. Sounds like Lif and a few others really aren't quite the
sorts that are generally referred to as tree-huggers--they at least feel that
they should have access to public lands to ride, etc. The true tree huggers
are those who are pushing for a "lock-down" of all resources--public AND
private--and that extreme is just as abusive to the resource as is the
extreme of immediate utilization for instant gratification.
