Mike Walter's Earth Page Attic
More environmental stuff that the Old Muskrat
didn't have room for on the main Earth Page.

"Goode Friende for Jesus' sake forbeare
to cut the wode that standeth heare.
Blest be the man who spares these leaves
But curst be he that cuts this tree."

"The Russian forests are groaning under the ax, millions of trees are being destroyed, the dwellings of wild beasts and birds are despoiled, rivers are subsiding, drying up, wonderful landscapes vanish never to return.... Man is endowed with reason and creative powers so that he may increase what has been given to him, but up to now he has not created but only destroyed."
--Anton Chekhov, Uncle Vanya, 1897.

Sounds familiar, doesn't it?
--The Old Muskrat, 1998.
