So, the way I read it BASE is now OK as the line 'This is not an appropriate public use activity within national park areas, and is prohibited by 36 CFR 2.' has been stricken from the language. Who's first?

Usually NPS charges folks who base jump or throw haul bags with "illegal air delivery"

I wouldn't jump to any conclusions
Ouch!

Typical Bush administration cave-in to the people who bought them the office:

deciding not to keep to a minimum grazing livestock; rather, we'll just 'educate' the public about them. How much you wanna bet that the education won't include the historic role of stock in overgrazing, destroying riparian areas, spreading exotic/invasive species, desertification...

What good is a piece of land if somebody can't make money off it?

And how about deciding to allow for-profit special events? With in-park advertising and special admission fees? They'll just decree that people will be into watching it, and everything's hunky-dory?

This is part of a systematic effort by the industrial tourism industry to turn public lands into corporate cash cows. If you view parks as essentially free, noncommercial recreational space, then you should be outraged, and you should speak up.

Where can we find the language? It has been removed from the site.
