    Teddy, a strange one, raised in a Republican family at a time, long, long ago when “Republican” was not a disparaging term and when “conservative” did not automatically mean “immoral”, as it does today. Hard to remember, now, when Republicans sought and worked for “the common good and the public interest”. Today’s posting is an excellent example. Perhaps the last such Republican was President Dwight Eisenhower, way back when I was just a kid.

      Wasn’t it Teddy Roosevelt that advocated for the National Parks?

      I don’t remember the details at this moment, but wasn’t there some talk among politicians to sell the rights to our National Parks to the corporation with the highest bid.

      That idea ranks right up with Reagan’s brilliant plan to classify ketchup as a vegetable for school lunches.

      Can you imagine planning a family trip to the Walmart Yosemite Park – or to see McDonalds Mt. Rushmore?
