      I apologize for posting something somewhat political to this group, but I think it is very relevant and very urgent. Governor Schwarzenegger has proposed cutting funding to and closing 80% of California's state parks. The proposal is going to be considered by Legislature's Budget Conference Committee next Tuesday, June 2nd. More info at http://www.calparks.org/takeaction/

      Since everyone on this list obviously enjoys spending time in the outdoors, I thought you'd all want to know since you have a chance to do something about it. You can sign the petition against this proposition at http://ga3.org/campaign/budget_may09 and can also make a donation if you care to. The list of California state parks that would be closed is below:
