An editorial by the New York Times today exposes Bush’s pretentions as being a conservationist. T.R.?, He’s No T.R.

In fact the Bush Administration’s minions get worse and more harmful by the day.

    I live in Va. near Shenadoah National Park. Did Bush talk about all the acres of park that have now been put up for sale.? Development over nature? Hmmm!

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
