Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has written National Park Service Director Fran Mainella a letter objecting to the proposed rewrite of national park management guidelines:

In a statement released by his office Thursday, Alexander said: "The National Park Service's plan to rewrite its management policies reduces the importance of conservation, impairs park air quality, and increases the likelihood of noise pollution."

Good for Alexander. Speaking of noise pollution, it's already a problem. There are too many bikers with loud pipes ruining what little peace and quiet can be found in the more crowded areas. If there aren't already, there ought to be strict noise ordinances. If they're already on the books they ought to be enforced.
