Robert Redford, in a letter made public on Friday, has royally dissed an invitation from U.S. Interior Secretary Gale Norton to attend a press event with her later this month to release a California condor into the wild. Norton invited Redford after learning that he was critical of her policies. She noted that he had starred in the 1975 thriller “Three Days of the Condor” and suggested that they could “discuss the best way to conserve America’s unspoiled landscapes and the wild creatures who inhabit them.” Redford told Norton that instead of meeting with her, he said he would use his time to draw attention to “the devastating environmental repercussions of the agenda you and President Bush embrace.”
