The calm intensity of Ali in that clip is not something we see so much these days. So direct and uninhibited but under complete control. His eyes are not opening wide in fear or anger yet he is driving his point home like a fucking pile driver.

I agree, 'forest' is often a misnomer around here.

Though tree farms are not all bad (like you, I used to consider them a crime against nature). There are worse solutions (assuming we accept human culture has a place on Earth to begin with) than building our dwellings from solar-power generated materials made of Co2.. How they are manged needs to change.

The major problem with forests in the PNW is that there isn't MORE fire. Fire has been suppressed (as the Oso fire will be), and the result is forests overburdened with fuel that burn too hot.

ATB is Articulated Tug/Barge. The tug fits into a notch in the back of the barge basically making a motorized barge.

If voters got the feeling the Amazons and Googles were being hit up for a fair portion of the funding for projects that will benefit those businesses, they might be more willing to go for it.

It's been well proven that not leaving a walking aisle on escalators moves many more people. You are basically sacrificing half the capacity for a swift few.
