Those jobs weren't lost due to the spotted owl, they were lost because 95% of the old growth forests were logged and there was hardly any left. The spotted owl was used as an excuse to save the last 5%.Those jobs would have been lost anyway when the last tree was cut. Now we have some old growth forest left. Painful to be sure, but worth it in the long run.I can't say I disagree with you on the Grizzly Bear issue. I've backpacked in Yellowstone. I didn't sleep the entire trip.Once you lose an environmental fight, you have lost forever. That tends to make environmentalists more extreme. Good for them. ==================================================I wonder how you would feel if they moved to close all the ski resorts and access for your rafting?Jean
