Because you know, the government is shut down. That means Old Faithful also has to shut down. And if it won’t shut down on its own, then it has to be blockaded to keep anyone from seeing it. The already crazy events in Yellowstone discussed yesterday, in which a bus of senior citizen tourists were locked in their hotel by armed rangers gets even more insane in the latest interview. Government bureaucracies are insane by definition, but this is approaching Kafkaesque territory.
