After reading your article (May 14) regarding President Bush's decision to slaughter the already endangered spotted owls by allowing ancient growth timber harvests, I was disgusted. Our forests are already overharvested. Like the Gold Rush of the last century came to an end because the gold ran out, so shall our timber supplies. Why not leave well enough alone?
And George Bush has dubbed himself the "Environmental President"? How dare he! President Bush is to America's ecology what Saddam Hussein is to the Middle East.
