Victory over the Mega Loads! No Lochsa route!

Wahoooooooo! Thanks for everyone for their voices, hard work, diligence, and
unending support.

I didn't post the other recent (partial) victory, when the MT judge upheld the injunction against the construction in Montana, further
delaying them for up to a year for the trial. Now, it seems Exxon is gone,
hopefully those in line behind them (hoping for a free ride of a high-wide
corridor building by Exxon) will disappear also. It is too good to be true.

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

I find it ironic that this is such an atrocity, but none of these organizations seem to care about Cristo spreading tarps across a river. I guess if its in the name of art...
