Dear Ken Burns,
The National Parks were a great idea. I can’t really think what America would be without sanctuaries for our souls like Yosemite and Yellowstone and the Everglades. Not to mention the best of all — the Grand Canyon.
But America’s best idea?
Somehow I think that waging — and winning — a war to end slavery, not to mention the Bill of Rights and the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 19th Amendments, were better ideas.
A great fan of both you and the National Parks.
