@nytimes When one is in a guerrilla war! One must use whatever mean you have to end the war. Even if those means are questionable. Teddy Roosevelt was the first person in high enough power to began saving our national forests. They are a treasure and resource must be managed not abused.

Labeling hippy tree-spikers eco-terrorists, but not ExxonMobil/Koch Brothers is ludicrous.
