It is not the Park Service, etc that are so nasty, it is this administrations directives on the partial shut down to make the hurt and pain as painful as possible. The public then will insist that this administration gets what it wants.
Shame, shame and shame on what is supposed to be a democracy. This kind of leader ship is evil. MO
From what I read and hear, the Park Service is not at all reluctant to carry out their instructions. They are being rude, arrogant and nasty. Why, for example, would you prevent people from stopping at privately-owned restrooms during a 2.5 hour drive out of Yellowstone Park? Why would they shut down privately-owned restaurants on the Blue Ridge Parkway if it remains open for traffic? Just two of many outrages.
