What do you have against NM? We're burning, just not as badly as the others.

Oops! Sorry, my bad. AND you're getting choked by all our smoke. Hope you can forgive me, neighbor!

In order to protect its telescopes at Mount Graham (which are funded by a consortium of universities), the University of Arizona wants to clear about 80 acres of trees and scrub around the site. The sensible action, which would clear less than 1/10 of a square mile is opposed by environmentalists and their lawyers who have threatened to sue. They are the same group of environmental fanatics who held up the positioning of telescopes for more than a year because of the presence of the endangered Mt. Graham squirrel. The very wily varmint has managed to survive quite well, telescopes and all.
