Waiting For Work in the Silent Woods

Though you would be interested in a Washington Post (Thursday, August 13, 2009), front page above the fold, article about a logger and the condition of the logging industry. It is a story of a logger who waits four days for a job while his crew and equipment set idle. There is quite a photo gallery as well. This story is not unique to Alabama, its appearance on the front page brings to light the stress to the logging industry and the rippel effects of poor markets, the stressed economy, and closed mills. Note the lesson in logging economics in the article - $1.6 million to $35,000. It is worth a read.
