I agree, well put. But I fear that with this "project", such a comment, even though showing the pitfalls and failures of what they are doing, will get classified as a TMP comment and therefore "outside the scope of this document". Just be prepared for that kind of a response from them.
Since the RAC I serve on is chartered to work with both the USFS and BLM, and we are involved in the Blue Mtn, Plan Revision, we get a little closer feel and comments from the feds than some others do. The general feeling here is that the team doing the planning rule is not only being driven by court decisions, but also has the marching orders from the very top, and it will be very "resource "friendly"". They are moving toward more protection and restoration than as a sustainable, multiple use resource for the public good.
