I meant to say seven cents worth of difference...hello? Is anyone still listening?
The Bush administration opened 300,000 more acres of Alaska's Tongass National Forest on Tuesday to possible logging or other development.
The decision allows 3 percent of the forest's 9.3 million acres, which were put off-limits to road-building by the Clinton administration, to have roads built on them and perhaps to be opened to use by the timber industry.
Ralph Nader will be along any minute to point out that there is still not a "dimes worth of difference" between George W. Bush and Al Gore.
