Re: Random comments about "The Fire."
If there weren't any "fuel" in the forests and it had been cleaned up as the Forest Service wanted, not stopped by many different radical environmental groups, the firebugs in Arizona and California would find it difficult to start enormous fires. Maybe now that fires are burning in their own precious Sequoia forests, they will realize the stupidity of their causes.
I'm sure many of you will join me in asking them to please stay out of Arizona and leave our professionals to do their job. Our senators and representative are trying to do something to make it much harder to stop Forest Service edicts. Even Senator Daschel (D) just got protection from environmental groups for his forests in South Dakota, so it should be hard for Congress to deny Arizona help.
