The fact that matters

Regarding the article "Clinton Would Reduce Logging in Northwest," July 2: The argument whether the job loss will affect 5,700 or 72,000 individuals seems pointless. The more important fact is that of the reduction in harvest. The reduction, which will be nearly 75 percent of the historic 1980s level of four billion board feet, is enough proof that this plan will severely affect the working forest communities from northern California to Washington.
