putting the "park" in national park

i somehow missed this editorial yesterday about Paul Hoffman's visions of snow-mobile, 4-wheel-drive, jet ski and religious paraphenalia-riddled national parks. any talk of evolution, however, is discouraged. both the la times and ny times have pretty in-depth articles about the proposed changes, which include allowing illegal uses of parkland as long as they don't "irreversibly" damage the area. this cat's been up to no good before, when he suggested that the UN remove Yellowstone from its World Heritage list of endangered places.

it looks like this crackpot isn't getting very far, though, as national park elders weren't hearing any of it...

but here's the worst case scenario.

the coalition of national park service retirees has links to the entire document.
