Sorry but I agree with Greg. We do not need to stop logging on all federal
land. I agree with both of you that we should not cut any more old growth
timber. It is not replaceable. I agree that it is our land that is the
people of the United States and we should have more say as to what it done
with it.

I do not want our timber sold at a loss no matter who cuts it. I do not want
the US Government to build roads in wilderness areas or any other area for
that matter to make it easier for timber companies to cut and remove timber.
If roads have to be built the timber companies should be building them at
their expense but at OUR specifications.
