The piece below is mostly good news, I guess. But an interesting question that doesn’t get answered is: Why does Dessecker and his Ruffed Grouse Society have such great access to the administration? The answer, of course, is that they front for Big Timber, whooping it up for clearcuts and roads and accepting major grant money from the perpetrators. They also whoop it up for the administration’s “Healthy Forest Initiative--an Orwellian moniker for a “no tree left behind” plan for our national forests designed by and for Big Timber. The Ruffed Grouse Society was the only sportsmen’s group to actively campaign against the Clinton administration’s initiative to protect our last roadless areas. www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2006-04-19-wyoming-preservation_x.htm
