Fwd: Re: cutting down trees?

And my (last) 2 cents.....

No one said cutting trees is unethical....I've cut down dozens around my 
house in the past years, which saved my house from being destroyed in a 
forest fire that happened two years ago....a terrorizing ordeal.  No, what 
I did say is that changing materially the property offered for sale is 
unethical, impacting the original terms and conditions of the property that 
could result in its cancellation.

Sorry...I've only been a ham for 41 years, 'though I do recall Sputnik very 
well......thank goodness I'm not a grumpy geezer!  And I defended for 26 
years your (and everyone else's) right to free speech, so go right 
ahead......  :-)

Now, back to AMSAT related items.....
