A Modest Proposal for the Federal Parks

Glenn Reynolds notes the latest Obama administration outrage: by peremptorily closing the Foothills Parkway in Tennessee, without giving notice to those who live in the area, the administration needlessly endangered the safety of a number of schoolchildren in order to make a political point. But what is the political point? Sensible people will draw the conclusion that the Feds can’t be trusted.

Glenn writes:

If I were in Congress, I’d be introducing legislation to turn the national parks over to the states.

Exactly. The states would exercise much better stewardship, free from the crazed political posturing we have seen from the Obama administration. But why stop with the national parks?
