Ken Burns new 10 part 20 hour special. It's wonderful, and the wonderful part that Republican's played in the creation of them. It also includes a period of Republican divisionism. and one of the most conservative Republicans (the "stand pat" Republicans who strived most solidly for the preservation of wilderness. It is a wonderful contemplative almost religious view of the issue.

Sorry, obviously I meant National Parks: though a national

parka for a few months of the years, and more in Alaska, might be a nice idea. However the government is over-extended as it is, so I am not suggesting it as a National Parka Plan or anything. That'd be taking the Nanny State a bit too far.

Why not a National Parka?

There MUST be a parka manufacturer somewhere which wants to become a big time winner of Bailout Lotto. Devil

To paraphrase... once a park is lost (its' resources mined and logged out), it is lost forever... but if a park is saved today, from the pressures to develop its' natural resources, then it will be up to future generations to continue to guard that park. It gives future generations something to value, and to realize just how fragile what is worth preserving really is.

It has been criticized for poor videography. Too dark.

The criticism looks well founded even when viewed on a high def TV.

Quite a bit of interesting history.

Unfortunately I'm not good at sitting through long periods of history lessons, never have been.

Heck, I'll confess that the photography of the parks themselves in present day means as much to me as the history when watching, just to see the scenery.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
