I wholeheartedly support the U.S. Forestry Service and its spokesperson Andrew Madsen. These are hardworking, low-paid men and women who serve the people of this great country out of passion and a sense of community responsibility rather than kowtowing to the big money of one special interest group or another. In addition to potentially saving hundreds of millions of dollars in property, many families' homes, (oh, and people's lives!), they are working to preserve one of our nation's most valuable resources: the pristine wilderness. Papering these men's and women's desks with frivolous threats of lawsuits is a waste of taxpayer money. Instead of taking an adversarial stance toward them, how about you strapping a shovel or an axe to your back and parachuting in behind an active fire line to help them do their jobs the next time a big wild fire rages? I love birds. But I love people and their families' homes even more.
