Well, I once worked with an eldery state forester who had gone to some
sort of BIG meeting of SAF and other such folks in Prussia. They sat in
a theatre waiting for a speach by a real high falutin German Prussian
Forestmeister, who came out with the high boots, a cape, a feathered
cap, a monocle, the works- a real aristocrat, who looked down at the
sloppy Americans in their flannel shirts and blue jeans. Not that I
consider myself an aristocrat, just my sense of self mockery. Another
time I was visiting a landowner here in Mass. and the owner had visitors
from Germany, who were VERY impressed that I was a forester. Like I was
some kind of celebrity. I began to think I ought to move to the
Deutchland- where I'd be rich and famous; whereas here in Mass.,
foresters are thought of more as unskilled labor and paid that way-
hence my domain name! <G>

They got voted down with only 2/3 in favor! Doesn't make much sense,
does it?
