This is from the Earthwatch mailing list - perhaps worth your while
dropping by the CNN site to cast a vote if you do that sort of thing.

Subject: CNN poll re: wilderness
The good people @ CNN are running an informal poll on wilderness. It's only
for braggin' rights and nothing more. That said, the orv folks (see below)
are getting their folks to respond en' mass. So, if you have 5, why not
slide over to CNN and post your vote. Last I checked there were about
4,900 votes, with 2900 or 57% in favor of more federal wilderness. No idea
how long it will be up.
