Hate Mail and Hiatus

I participated in a national news conference about the damage Off Road Vehicles are doing to our watersheds and wildlife in the west a couple of weeks ago. Not all off roaders are bad people, but here is an email I got from one of them. I deleted his email address

Subject: Is this the same whinney a** bureaucrat from "Irresponsible ex
environMENTAList whacko Rangers for "Responsible (meaning NONE)" Recreation
coalition" trying to shut down off road activity?

You morons have already crammed all the off roaders into little tiny
little overcrowded spaces, now you whine about them being so
concentrated and try to find any excuse to get that shut down as
well? You people are the problem, not the solution. So what if a damn
weed gets run over or if it takes a while for a track to disappear?
DEAL WITH IT! What is it about the baca name that makes them all such
america haters?

This is the kind of stuff that Honda Motor company and other manufacturers support through the "Blue Ribbon Coalition" lobby. This is the group that lobbies for and gives money to these off roaders to fight meaningful legislation. I have crossesd Honda off my car buying preferences until they stop this stuff.

I will be off for a few days to attend a Wyss Foundation meeting in Swan Valley, Montana. It should be a lot of fun.
