Al Gore: I am a proud Tree-Hugger


Political Pundit Dave Barry recently wrote:
Each Forest Face is a set of facial features that you attach to a tree, thus transforming it from a boring, stiff, lifeless lump of wood like Al Gore into a tree with a vibrant personality, like the ones that threw apples at Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz."
Mr. Barry, no one wins when cheap shots are taken. They only lower the level of debate, dehumanizing us all. In the future, please refrain from attacking trees in such a blatant and racist way. I love trees and I consider trees and certain patches of berries to be among my very best friends. I take attacks against them personally. I am also troubled by the notion that trees are somehow boring without what-amounts-to plastic surgery. Do you have any idea what that does to the psyche of young female trees? It's that sort of mentality that leads to tree anorexia and cutting. Finally, I'd like to state the obvious. Occupation by human settlers on the land that Vegetation hopes to form a state, only leads to violent tree militarism against civilian targets, such as the Vegetation 1998 military operations against Sony Bono and Michael Kennedy. One World, Mr. Barry, One Species. Peace.

When Al invented the internet, did he know that he was making trees irrelevant?

Seriously consider the soul, and plants do have some kind of soul, a life principle.

Speaking of other species that share some percentage of our own DNA, I always like the idea that someday in heaven our family would once again get to visit "Dog Heaven," and see our Collie dog named "Timmy."

It is altogether impressionable to put some spirit into these things, and counter the "anti-tree huggers," with a message on life within all creation.

I am not going into the "A," word however, since nobody is doing anything about it anyway but make hot air. At least Bill Clinton suggested diminishing those statistics.

Saying that one "cannot see the forest for the trees," has some counsel, but did not explore a bit. Maybe it is something like "losing your keys," when they are in your hand all along.

Well keep talking to the plants, and they surely will grow better. A hug now and then might work, both for plants and people one on one.
