In today’s WSJ, Kimberly Strassel says we should “hug a logger, not a tree.” I appreciate the political point she’s making, but I have to disagree. Strongly.
Kimberly, I spent four years living behind the Redwood Curtain, living in Eureka, CA, and working just north of there in Arcata. That’s serious logger country. I’ve met loggers, I know loggers, I’ve conducted interviews over coffee with loggers.
And trust me, Kimberly, when I say that nine times out of seven, you do not want to be a man trying to hug a strange logger.
