Another thing just occured to me ... why is it that it's OK for the
Sierra Club or a wilderness society to pass the word for their people
to vote, but if another organization does it ("numb-skull ORV
extremists?") they're "trying to stack the deck?"
Anyway, until the government starts being more fair and even-handed in
allowing access to wilderness areas I oppose adding any more of them.
Don't forget that a new wilderness designation almost ended the Tevis
Cup -- it took an act of Congress to get them an exception!
