Save the Ocala National Forest

President Bush plans on selling nearly 1,000 acres of the Ocala National Forest. The sale is awaiting approval of Congress. Bush is trying to pitch the sale as benefitting schools. That is an amusing statement from a man who underfunded No Child Left Behind by $40 billion. The sale will only generate $800 million.

Dave, at Spacecoastweb writes eloquently about growing up around the Ocala Forest and how he will not be able to pass those experiences on to his children if the forest is sold.

There is also the potential Katrina-effect of selling so much land near water.
