Regarding the Opinion page article "Bush Trade: Redwoods for Votes," March 17, indeed it is critical at this time to take a long-term view of our society, our economy, and our global environment. Sadly, I find that Mr. Bush and his administration are only capable of proposing short-term solutions to problems that have been developing over decades. Is his administration posing these solutions merely to be reelected, or because they are incapable of looking at the long term? Timothy Karsten, Summerland, Calif.
