You're on your soapbox to pump up your ego in Alabama and I'm on my
soapbox for my reasons. Often, a few weeks will go by and I stay off the
soapbox, but then then sooner or later I'll see you give a jab at me
while you respond to someone else. If you didn't do that I'd probably
stay off the soapbox, but when I see that I'll climb right back on.

No kidding. Talk about arrogance, you have your fair share- typical of
burrocrats. Go out and work in the real world for awhile; where your
great creativity will be greatly rewarded.

If you don't like what I write, then keep your trap shut. If you respond
with your own brand of arrogance, you'll just keep me talking.

Well, in your own personal forestry bulletin board, you'll have control.
Here, you have no control.

If every state forester in America was fired this instant, the grand
effect on forestry in America would be a GREAT IMPROVEMENT. So stuff
that one.

Hey, I like to argue, so keep it going if you like.
