2. Hi. Welcome to DU. I don't mean to be a busybody, but....

the material in the upper box in LBN is supposed to be taken from the article, no more than four paragraphs.

Any comments you have then go in the comment box.

I am not a forum host. Don't worry; you'll get the hang of it.

Welcome again.

5. Then who's going to be left to begin raking the forest floor?

According to the preznut, somebody's got to to it.

On edit: Looks like #4 and 5 shared a brainwave or two.
