Gov't. Shutdown Stupidity

Photo credit: Bryan Preston
Thanks to Cal Skinner's McHenry County Blog, I learned of one more example of the stupid decisions during the Government Shutdown. This one involves the closing of an unmanned scenic overlook in the Washington, D.C. area.

Can there be anything more stupid than dispatching a paid Parks Service employee and truck to shut down an unmanned scenic overlook? Does that save money? Doesn't that cause an unnecessary expense?

How many millions of tourist dollars are being wasted when foreign visitors and our own U.S. residents travel on planned vacations to National Parks, only to find their way blocked? For what? Because the trash cans won't get emptied?

Where are they getting all the guards to keep people out of these places?
