      Be sure to comment on how boring your find all the stories about dogs and trees that you read after coming to this blog repeatedly, steve.

      • steve85

        Its true. A lot of stories on here is about a tree being cut down and people panic is if were having a earthquake or an animal of some sort. I been reading this blog for a long time “Normal”

          Thanks, steve, for another comment about how you read on this board about something you didn’t want to read on this board. Keep’em coming!

          Do you mean the post from yesterday about the 150th anniversary of the Civil War that included an anecdote about an enterprising method that was employed to clear Arlington forests in order to see large enemy armies approaching?

          How do we have an ‘animal’?

          As for trees, I guess you’d rather live in a hot dry desert. There are plenty available.

          • steve85

            Yeah the last time I checked you have to use a tree to build something. They had to remove trees to build the place where you live. So when I see someone cry about a tree being cut down or removed I think its sad. I wish people would feel the same way about humans.

            Who is crying about a tree being cut down 150 years ago? The article was interesting from the angle that many parts of Arlington are very green and leafy with mature hardwoods today and the images of a denuded Arlington are an interesting juxtaposition.

            I’m not talking about the article yesterday. I talking about the numerous amount of stories about a tree beong cut down. All in the KoolIAid and don’t know the flavor.

          • normal

            Yes, we know what you’re talking about, steve. You’re talking about how dumb it is to talk about trees. You keep talking about it, over and over, about how it’s dumb to talk about them, over and over. Trees trees trees!

            Give us more posts on this forum about how you aren’t interested in this forum, steve. Tell us on this blog again about other blogs you think are better and would be reading if you weren’t busy reading this one.

            steve — I wasn’t interested in an article about trees, or an article about dogs. So I didn’t read them. Because I didn’t read what I wasn’t interested in, I feel good about myself and those around me.
