Seriously, I think the NFS could meat us halfway on this.

I've never herd of anything so ridiculous. How dairy thoughtless of the Forest Service not to consider how this would affect all of us.

I knew of a lady from Chicago, once... Kate O'Leary... if this were her barn, and those were her cows... well, this problem would have taken care of itself.

I personally gristle at the idea of tearing down historic architecture.

Yeh, I have a T-bone to pick also. Wouldn't a cattle guard work just fine, or some posts spaced close together, or some other mechanism work just fine? Guess they don't see this rib-eye to rib-eye with us.

After taking stock of everything I have herd I am persueded that they have really butchered this. Clearly a cattle guard to skirt the cabin's patty-o would remeatiate the situation in a New York minute.

Udderly ridiculous. The policowly correct thing to do would be to recycle the roof and moove the wood elsewhere.
