Breakfast.
Morning paper, La Times (yes groan if you must). Front page article on the Cali section regarding a novel way to pillage and destroy some very nice foersts up north. You see, The Pacific Lumber Co. are Oncelers and are trying to blackmail all of us. They will file for chapter 11 unless we let them cut some forests. If they go chapter 11, they will have no choice but to cut some old growth redwood. Hmm. Pacific Lumber for all of you who don’t know are the most pernicious oncelers, and have pulled these tricks before (See this from 1994 where Maxxam pulled same stunk and won). When we will the world listen to my friend the Lorax, who is obviously a Yid, and a Tu B’Shvat Freak?

Great Article on Rabbis in the Woods, Also against Maxxam
