Finally, important stuff on C-SPAN

They're talking about funding the National Parks. A representative from the National Parks Foundation is describing how underfunded the parks currently are, and what the benefits of the parks can be to the public beyond the obvious (i.e., hiking trails).

Naturally, the first caller was a member of the tinfoil hat crowd and treated listeners to a rambling paean to a park that is not part of the National Park system. Fortunately, that person seems to be the exception. All the calls since then have been from rational adults who love the parks and are concerned about the impacts of idiotic legislation like the recent bill allowing people to carry loaded weapons in National Parks.
