Saving or selling Maine? 

Credit:  Bangor Daily News, www.bangordailynews.com 5 January 2011 ~~

The dictionary definition of a hypocrite is a person who professes certain ideals but fails to live up to them. After reading Matt Dunlap’s latest column in the Northwoods Sporting Journal, I can’t help but wonder: Is he a hypocrite?

Dunlap serves on the board of the once-respected Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine. SAM sold out the people it claims to represent by allowing First Wind LLC, the company that is destroying the Maine woods, to grease SAM’s skids with cash and become a corporate sponsor.

So now Dunlap sings the praise of yet another grand sportsman’s organization, the Maine Outdoor Federation, whose mission statement is “to work together to preserve our natural resources,” an organization “able to respond, if needed, in the event of a crisis.”

Hey, Matt! The most pristine, most remote areas of Maine are being clear-cut, blasted and defoliated to make way for 40-story monstrosities that will turn our rural horizon into an industrial landscape! Just what type of crisis are you and SAM waiting for? And Dunlap represents SAM on the Keeping Maine’s Forests committee? I might find it amusing if it was not so terribly sad.
