COMPUTER IS IN THE SHOP IN SARASOTA and may not get repaired or replaced before I leave for home soon. So posting may be light for a while.
Want to say the terrible conflagration in and around the Great Smokies is in large measure due to the feds prohibiting selective cutting of the aging forests there, thereby allowing a huge buildup of dead and dying fuel over the decades. Radical environmentalists have encouraged this insanity also. It's happened in Yellowstone and will continue to happen there and now in the East during periods of drought.
One way or another, Mother Nature will rebalance the environment whatever government policies are. Perhaps a wiser model of stewardship should be adopted by the new Trump administration.
