Letter: Timber workers should sue environmentalists

Timber workers should file suit

OK, the environmentalists have been winning lawsuits ever since logging threatened the spotted owl for any timber company that won a bid to log a tract. That’s false, my brother was a timber cutter and never

saw an owl threatened. Then, we heard some news about the other owl threatening the spotted owl. Oh, what are we going to do now? Nevermind the untold hundreds of jobs eliminated. The extreme environmental groups could care less about them. There are big lobbyists at Capitol Hill that are paid by several big clubs against any logging, even the old growth that has proven to be dying.

These people do not care about jobs for an untold amount of people in the timber industry.

All of the timber industry workers should file a class action suit.

P.S: I do not have a dog in the fight.
