Re: Mass River closures in Washington State in 2012.
True, in my humble opin' only.
Real issue, or one of the major issues, is 'Population Pressure.' Too many, chasing too few? As an example of that, if you drew a 50 mile circle from downtown Seattle ... you'd have more people than live in the entire State of Oregon.
And of 'those' 65-70 percent would live within 75-100 miles of 'down town' Portland.
