In general, Chief Druid is using his hotmail account to evade
detection of his identify (or portrayal of a false identity) for purposes 
of involvement on this list.  Normally, I would send him on the same way as 
greenscreen17 and others.  However, "CD" raises an interesting issue here 
that merits some rescue from the mandatory unsubscribe chopping block.

I would like CD to outline for us some specific examples of the type of 
"heavy lifting" that the citizen environmental movement in Michigan ought 
to be doing in Michigan, since he/she/it appears to be dissatisfied
with the current efforts of Michigan enviros.  I'd like you to tell
us your definition of what you consider "heavy lifting" to be
and what issues on which specific issues on which we should be doing it.
