Why is "Elissa Fazio" using the atheists email for her agenda? (Which might
or might not be the agenda of our members.) Is she a member of our group?

Please be careful about a knee jerk reaction to the news of using 
RoundUp on test plots in the Tucson Mountains to eradicate bufflegrass.  
Bufflegrass invasion is itself an environmental disaster.  If there is a 
fire in the Tucson Mountains (or for that matter anywhere where the 
bufflegrass is thick) we will lose all the native flora forever.  Native 
cacti have a cuticle that is not affected by the spray and the reason 
these test plots are being sprayed is to determine exactly how all the 
different plant species react.  The people doing this are the good guys 
they are not purveyors of any "evil corporation" trying to destroy the 
desert.  Please learn the facts before simply hearing "Monsanto' and 
"RoundUp" and assuming the worst.  The manual removal of bufflegrass is 
not working and we need to find new ways to rid the landscape of this 
serious threat.  I know people who have been dedicating their work lives 
to the this problem for years now and they say that the methodology of 
these test areas is safe and necessary.  Please do some research before 
inciting a reaction based solely on emotion and not education.
