Lure of Money is Shaping the National Forests

We are seeing more advertising, more fees, more roads to draw timber sales and lumber-mill jobs, more attempts to sell land outright, more "partnerships"—often with big-money concessionaires and others with greedy eyes focused keenly on our national forests. April Fool's joke? Yes, but not in the traditional 4/1 sense. Foolishness seems to abound within the FS, the Congress, and the Administration. Or maybe it is "wisdom," and I'm the April Fool?
