Garrison Keillor: ...after this message, from folksinger Guthrie Woods. (GUITAR CHORD)

Tim Russell: Guthrie Woods here for the Sierra Club. This Christmas, don't give a poinsettia. They last a couple weeks and your cat eats the leaves and gets really sick. (CAT GAGGING). Give the gift of a lifetime , a redwood seedling. Redwoods look great, they're easy to care for, they're a renewable oxygen source, and people write songs about them. Nobody ever wrote a great song about poinsettias. Nobody ever chained himself to a poinsettia in protest either. Your gift of a redwood is an investment in America's future. And someday it'll make a really neat picnic table. (GUITAR)


This land is your land, this land is my land,
From New Orleans, to Fire Island,
From the richest suburbs to the poorest,
And now you can have your own redwood forest.
