In watching the Whitewater-Baldy Complex Fire consume acre after acre of trees and grassland here in New Mexico, I wonder where are all the environmental groups who scream and shout and sue every time anyone wants to graze animals in our forests, or do logging, or clean off brush, or even set foot on our public lands.

As we watch our precious resources go up in smoke, I wonder where are all these environmental groups and environmentalists and nature lovers and Forest Guardians and Sierra Club members and lawyers and forest 'experts' whose monstrously ignorant and self-indulgent environmental wisdom has helped lead to this. How come they're never around when the sparks fly, when the ash falls, or when the smoke befouls our air? Why aren't THEY out fighting our fires?
