E-M:/ greens and forest issues

Enviro-Mich message from "Murray Dailey" <murphwild1@hotmail.com>


I apologize for this not being specifically Michigan related, but thought i 
would pass it along considering the heated nature of the last weeks, and the 
fact that Michigan is swing state.  In earlier posts, i made mention of not 
seeing many greens involved in forest issues in Michigan.  Well, here is 
some reporting from Bush's home state of Texas.

kind regards,

Murray Dailey
