I agree with Dave Carter below and couldn't have possibly expressed it better.
That said, I missed the news of last week ("Gee, honey, did anything happen while I was away?") because of a two-night wilderness raft trip in no water and four nights in Yellowstone Park signing books and giving talks. Yellowstone is, of course, run by the National Park Service. Therein lies the problem.
Some unknown, unaccountable bureaucrat (or team of bureaucrats) in the NPS have decided that the "visitor experience" in national parks like Yellowstone is less than ideal if the concessionaires of said parks offer wi-fi to paying guests -- as well as keeping TV's out of the rooms. It's not as if the hotels and lodges in Yellowstone are so remote that cable and wi-fi would be difficult to install. After all, the NPS makes sure THEY have the internet in all their offices. When a VIP like Mr. Obama or his minions pass through for a photo op, the concessionaire is instructed to rig up internet capability. And to take it back down after the VIP departs.
There are those who choose to turn off their computers and phones when they go on vacation. That's perfectly fine. But in this case, our federal overlords do it for us since we are their children and without their intervention, heck, we might bumble into a geyser while reading our Twitter feed.
Of course, given what happened last week, I may want to go back to Yellowstone -- and stay there.
