The timber sale described in this article isn't about meeting a public need. No sir. It's about corporate profit, and the taking of old-growth trees that Wild Nature planted tens of thousands of years ago.

The cry of "let this happen because it will generate jobs" is a smokescreen for the permanent taking of a forest. Damn.
