Bush wants more roads in pristine forest land

A note I sent as a part of a petition to the US Forest Service:

Do not open up these forests for roads! Do you have any idea how few secluded and un-touched areas there are in this great land of ours? Unfortunately for most of us, we don't have a fenced-in ranch to call our own wide open space. Not only should we NOT plow roads through these lands you're proposing but they should be protected as state and national parks so we can focus our nation's energy on alternative sources of building materials rather than chopping down habitats and recreation areas.

You too can read and sign this petition at http://www.moveon.org/roadless/. Ever see those pictures of what happens to the Amazon rainforest when roads are introduced? Logging spreads like a virus.
