I just watched the NPX film concerning the federal shutdown which just ended. NPS employees did not cause the parks to close, but certainly took the brunt of the frustration from visitors, including a Representative from Texas who helped to cause the the shutdown. He had the nerve to tell a ranger she should be ashamed, which I found incredibly insensitive and an absolute outrage, considering it was Congress that couldn't or wouldn't fund the government. These places are treasures, and I will do all I can to protect them, enhance them, and help others experience them.
