Then again, maybe not

cracked-nps.jpgWhen I commented recently about a stop Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and National Park Service Director Mary Bomar made at Great Smoky Mountains National Park on their listening tour, I took a tentatively positive view of the event.

But maybe — just maybe — if there are enough of these listening sessions, and if enough people participate to let their voices be heard, we can get park bureaucrats to re-align their goals with our need for wild and natural places that are protected for future generations.

Yet even with my disclaimer, my comments now seem almost exuberant when I look back on them just 10 days later.

That’s because I read this post by National Parks Traveler.
