National parks are free save for a nominal user fee, and offer nothing much in the way of amenities or commodities. Theres a distinct difference between tourist and "bird watchers," Tourist visit places that offer comfortable lodging, arts and entertainment, regional cuisine, ect. Bird watchers visit places like cumberland, sleep on the ground, and bring their own trail mix and sunflower seeds, adding very little to the economy.

Gordon is the last of a breed of newspaper guys. I haven't picked up a newspaper in a year and a half, especially that thing they call the local paper. No need when I can get the latest right here on my computer.
