Arnold's closing State Parks to save money...shades of what I posted about an economic slow down benefitting the wilderness...like what happend in collapse of Soviet Union...what one article says has benefitted Cuba's wild places for decades!

Should the stock of the bank principally pass into the hands of the subjects of a foreign country, and we should unfortunately become involved in a war with that country, what would be our condition? Of the course which would be pursued by a bank almost wholly owned by the subjects of a foreign power, and managed by those whose interests, if not affections, would run in the same direction there can be no doubt. All its operations within would be in aid of the hostile fleets and armies without. Controlling our currency, receiving our public moneys, and holding thousands of our citizens in dependence, it would be more formidable and dangerous than the naval and military power of the enemy.

A short post tonight..it's late...and no pic..
Oh...I dont quite know how these Parks can be "closed" as people will sneak into them...and use the picnic benches and what not.
Actually, I have something wrong...the State Parks aren't about development...and it was developement halted by economic anemia that ocurred in the Soviet Union..and seems to be the steady state of Cuba!...and that helped the environment restore and maintain.
