Thank you for the article "Bush Trade: Redwoods for Votes," March 17.
It's hard to understand why the tree merchants can't learn that it's their own futures they're endangering by immoderate harvest of old-growth timber. And to whine that they're unable to earn a living any other way is ridiculous - other Northwestern people do.
The author is to be commended for stating the case so well. Mary Mc Murtrey, Walla Walla, Wash.
