The Healthy Forests Restoration Act of 2003

That's the name of the Bush-proposed gut-the-forests initiative the House is currently debating. It's bad policy and another example of cynical giveaways that so characterize the Bush White House. But worse than that, it's a law that would, in part, prevent legal actions. It's another example of the administration's effort to remove the checks-and-balances feature of the judiciary. Thus it's not only a gut-the-forests law, but a gut-the-barriers-to-my monarchy law, as well. I wonder what Rove calls that--the quinella?

[Update: Today this legislation sailed through the House.]
