Bring back the green republicans!

  Bully! Bully! Bully! Andrew Gulliford’s essay about President Teddy Roosevelt should be read by every card-carrying Republican (HCN, 10/13/03: Where's Teddy when you need him?). I am and always have been a Republican. I would challenge that, between Roosevelt and Richard Nixon, we Republicans have produced some of the most significant conservation and protection legislation for the landscape. "T.R." gave this country huge tracts of protected land. Nixon’s tenure gave us the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water ACT, NEPA, etc. The current Republican and his submissives are disgusting. We need some change; we need some Republicans that care about wild land, wildlife and wildlife habitat.
