Re: “Roads and Redwoods

Christina Bauss writes, "While some environmentalists have worked towards being proactive, much of the local movement has been essentially reactionary -- people rising up to stop bad things from being done." Um, I think the appropriate word is "reactive." In any political context, "reactionary" has the connotation of, as Miriam-Webster Online currently notes, "ultraconservative." This incautious use of language goes along with Ms. Bauss' tendency to trivialize EPIC's current efforts and to make this all into an ethics-free story of he-said, she-said.
