Good call on the PLP! The work they are doing is invaluable to everyone that has a stake in the use of Public Lands.
They are the worthy recipients of the 2011 'Golddigger Greg Go-Git-Em' award and bursary. [-1st-]

Took a look and I will have to email them to see if they have anything in Georgia.  What I did see, the majority of their work is out west.  We'll see what they have to say.

GOt some good news.

 Wildlaw, an eco law firm, is out of business. Carl Pope, head of the Sierra Club recently resigned over discontent on the groups direction  and The Wilderness Society cut staff by 17% (total of 31% over the last year) due to lack of donations, well organized opponenets (namely us) and a serious drop in membership. And another eco group is getting hell rained on them that may result in criminal charges.

 Interesting times, eh?

Good news for certain !  And where applicable, it goes to show what can be done when birds-of-a-feather all stand up together.  We are a wayward bunch, forever seeking our own path to travel upon, however, if desiring the golden walkway, we need organization, commitment and joint participation.  Locally, cross-borders and across the globe.  As WE all know, this world would stop turning if mining were halted – I guess it’s up to Us to educate THEM.  Whence our uphill journey crests that peak, ‘tis then we may pause and revel over our accomplishments.
Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.
