Fed.Gov Has Shut Down The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall?

     Says here they have -- which probably means Park Police, since it's a wall, in the middle of an unfenced park.  Which means they have to be paying 'em.

     Bureaucrats are citing the chance of vandalism, possible crimes against persons and emergency medical services; which I guess means that normal public safety services are considered nonessential -- but lining up armed men in uniform to say "Verboten!" to members of the public wanting to pay their respects at a revered monument (one made of hard, hard rock and solidly anchored) is utterly necessary to the continued functioning of our great republic.

     Okay, then.  But they're gonna need taller, shiner boots.

I was rather amused by the traffic cones to prevent people looking at Mount Rushmore from the road. Meh; rather go see the Crazy Horse Memorial again anyway.

It's certainly more apt, especially these days -- but it was never not apt.

Didn't Buck Henry and Mel Brooks do something like this in the 60's?
A big sign on the side of the road, "New York is Closed".
People would stop and Buck or Mel would be standing there, and the people would ask "What is this?" Buck or Mel would point to the sign, and say something like, "There's the sign."
Was it Karl "Can't get Das Kapital together" Marx who said, History repeats itself, first as comedy, then as dark comedy?
