thanks-RE: Concerns for the evironment:
- Thanks for your quick reply, art. I appreciate your linkage of what we do
and what happens to the so-called environment. At the risk of too much
politicization, I will say that I agree with you that under the (most
probably upcoming) Bush administration, there will not be much done about
our relationship to "the environment" (to All My Relations, as the Lakota
people--a native american group-- say).
That means those of us who are moved have even more of a calling in these
next four years and beyond.
