From an article in today’s New York Times: 


Last week, the United States Senate voted 51 to 49 to support an amendment to a nonbinding budget resolution to sell or give away all federal lands other than the national parks and monuments. If the measure is ever implemented, hundreds of millions of acres of national forests, rangelands, wildlife refuges, wilderness areas and historic sites will revert to the states or local governments or be auctioned off. These lands constitute much of what’s left of the nation’s natural and historical heritage.


What’s wrong with these 51 senators? I’m sure they fancy themselves as patriots; yet they favor destruction of our national heritage. Is it just that they have no appreciation of nature, or has a pernicious virus taken over their brains?
