Not much time, so really quickly let me pass along a link. It’s to Coyote Blog written by a fellow whose name I do not know. He lives in Phoenix and has an evidently successful company running parks for state governments as well as the federal government. His business is to run the parks and campgrounds, pay the government for the concession and apparently make a profit doing so. Despite the fact that his activities generate income for the governmental entities, he has been shut down by the National Park Service. He has been blogging pretty consistently about his battles with the government since the shutdown and his last blog which I’m linking to highlights the silliness of the entire affair. If interested, I suggest you peruse his earlier posts on the effect of the shutdown on his business and the pettiness of this bit of political theater.
