Comments from Afar

I spent the last couple of days in Durango, Colorado at a meeting of the Governing Council of the Wilderness Society.  We had members in from all over the country and they kept approaching me about the negative TV ads they were seeing in the Governor's race, especially Susana Martinez's.  They were aghast at the nastiness.  I told them I saw the same kind of mudslinging in both Massachusetts and New York last week.  A lot of very accomplished people are on the Council and most were strongly lamenting the over arching power of money from corporate America that is being used secretly in these elections.  It is unprecedented and the Sap public has no clue.

We did have beautiful scenery for our meeting.
