It's not safe in the woods

This morning's Washington Post had this comment:

some Democrats are eager to use the lame-duck session that starts this week to pass as many bills as possible while the party still controls both chambers of Congress.
While the article was about another topic it echoed other voices I've heard about the lame-duck session coming up. Most importantly, a lot of members who were voted out of office will try to ram through legislation to enforce their Green Taliban agenda.

Land closures will be at the top of their list and they will care little about what people think because they have already lost their elections and have nothing more to lose. Now is the time to write the politicians who have been re-elected and tell them you hold them accountable for the actions of all the members of their party. The Blue Ribbon Coalition has an excellent political action program. If you don't belong, you should. At least you should use their resources to write your politicians to let them know how you feel about open access.

Write today, or cry tomorrow!!
