The hot mess continues

Day 3 of the shutdown and things are looking no better than on day one. It doesn’t look like the Republicans have any idea how to get themselves out of this mess because the whole idea of shutdowns is that it forces the two sides to come together and compromise.

Gee, I can’t for the life of me figure out what the difference is between this and the other 17 federal shutdowns.

While you meditate on that, you should check out this very interesting paper Mr. Meyer wrote for the Property and Environment Research Center called “A Tale of Two Parks.” It’s not very long and is a very interesting explanation of private management of public lands.
