By taking the most aggressive stance of any agency to harass and punish US citizens for their Congress’s inability to reach a budget agreement, the National Parks Service looks increasingly like Obama’s attack- lap dog. I’d guess that of all our divisions of government, the Parks are, or were, the least controversial – who doesn’t like Smokey the Bear? Payback’s a bitch, though, and the next time these little jackboots send their own budget over to the Hill, I expect that whatever goodwill they’ve enjoyed up to now will have vanished.
Hope so. Elephants are supposed to have a long memory, no?
