The Obama administration's biggest scandal?

The Weekly Standard thinks it might be their handling of National Parks.

An excerpt:
"... consider the actions of the National Park Service since the government shutdown began. People first noticed what the NPS was up to when the World War II Memorial on the National Mall was “closed.” Just to be clear, the memorial is an open plaza. There is nothing to operate. Sometimes there might be a ranger standing around. But he’s not collecting tickets or opening gates. Putting up barricades and posting guards to “close” the World War II Memorial takes more resources and manpower than “keeping it open.”

I haven't posted much on the shutdown, because I tend to think its effects are overstated.  Some of the actions, however, have been disappointing.
