I’m not one to bash the idea of National Parks, because they are American gems. I’ve visited many of them. And I hope you’ve had the opportunity to do that, too. If not, start soon.
But a recent action gave me pause. Two members of Congress introduced a bill to add the Apollo moon landing sites to the park system.
I understand the desire to protect the historic space and might even join those who are promoting the idea were it not for more pressing problems facing our nation. I agree it would be a good idea to protect such important real estate from some future potential nefarious moon explorers.
How the U.S. would enforce protection of the landing sites remains a question. Perhaps a bigger question is who’d we be protecting the site against since almost nobody but Alice Kramden can get there (with the help of husband Ralph). What about the cost?
