Park Rangers speak out

Park Rangers speak out

Anonymous Park Rangers Speak Up by Land of Enchantment We have been recently treated to the Congressman who told a Park Ranger in DC that she should be ashamed of herself. (Because of the government shutdown he and his party had worked so hard to bring down upon us all!) She did not have the liberty to mouth off at his small-minded, mean-spirited willful ignorance.
