        You can't keep up because Mr. Parker's  responses
have nothing to do with the points he pretends to be
responding to...
          He just won't aceept the fact that the timber companies (etc...)
are not the independent agents he wishes they were...
          He wants to pretend that  the demand for wood
products by people like him  have nothing to do with what
and how they operate....
            Of course, without customers for their products
they wouldn't exist, but why let reality get in the way of
one's fantasies about being an environmentalist?
