Reading CNN.com and listening to KLOS 95.5FM tonight, I heard about this tree, a 400-year-old oak tree that some developer wants to chop down to make room for widening a two-lane road near the oak. Come on people, this tree is over twice the age of the United States of America. It’s a part of history. This tree has survived so much over the past 400 years, wars, fires, etc.
Here’s a funny thing… Gray Davis, the governor for all of California says it’s a “local problem” and won’t help in trying to save this tree. All of California is his problem. Why not make the road go around the tree? That would just be to easy I guess.
Anyway, sorry for the rant but if you care to read the story, here’s a link to the story.
