You probably know, or maybe you don't, that they cut down the most pristine pine tree they could find up here in the Lolo National forest and sent it to the White House. That tree's crime was that it was simply so beautiful the upside down thinkers in the American government thought it deserved to die.

I'm not a radical environmentalist, but IMHO a decorated, yet living, tree is far more beautiful. I know that's just a small tree and it's no big deal to kill it, but I think it would be much better to have used one of the plastic and wire trees like the one I decorated at my friends house this last Christmas. It so much simpler an quicker to do. It's alos cheaper since his family can use the same tree over and over again.

So let them plant a tree at the White House, and decorate that one every year. Or better yet, get a hundred plastic and wire trees and plant them every year. Let the masses decorate them, let the children of the world come and take presents from them.

But save the little guys, let them grow into big trees like the one they killed in Lolo this year. It's interesting to see how a liittle tree like that grows big. You plant it and forget about it then one day, some years later, you suddenly realize: It's huge!
