brap: Dear Evie,Thank you for taking the time to share your insights. Your letter hangs on my cubicle and me and the gang like to take a moment each day to laugh at your bright-eyed naivete.First of all, the very concept of "nature" is a social construct. Your hollow gesture is the marketing equivalent of writing "all natural" on a Big Mac. I think "greenwashing" is the term the hippies are using now, as if taking bong hits and coming up with clever labels makes them enlightened.Soon enough you will learn that the whole world is a cluster fark of muddled meanings and half truths.By the way, the fossil fuels used to transport your letter caused far more damage than your original gesture of accidentally taking two sticks from Yosemite.Actually, after having examined the sticks in question, we have found that they are not in fact native to the Yosemite area and are covered with a wildlife-eating spore that was must have been introduced from your end. By having removed them, you may have in fact prevented a kudzu-esque overtaking of our native species. Alas, since you returned them the seeds and spores have been released. I am afraid you have reopened Pandora's box and the plague-beast has been unleashed. Thanks to your meddling, the world or "nature" as you so naively envisioned it, will soon cease to exist.Anyway, thanks for being a Junior Ranger! I have enclosed a new Smokey The Bear STOMP OUT FOREST FIRE BADGE, which being plastic sickens me. Don't even get me started about the benefits of fire in revitalizing the ecosystem.Anyhew it's lunchtime aka Martini In The Firetower Hour.Stay Foxy,Ranger Dick
bikerbob59: Not to belabor the point, but I will. Is it Donald the Duck or Mickey the Mouse? No! Tis not!/Sorry, my father was a US Forest Ranger.....//carry on!
bikerbob59: FOR THE LAST TIME, IT IS NOT SMOKEY THE BEAR! IT IS SMOKEY BEAR!!!/GGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH
BigLuca: Sure, a little girl takes a couple of sticks and it's all "awww, so cute." I take a couple of black bear cubs and it's all "OMG, FEDERAL OFFENSE."The hypocrisy sickens me.
