Sebe you are a smart guy. You are our MVB (Most Valuable Blogger), you know much about many and varied subjects. I try to read them all.
I just got one suggestion: Could you shorten 'em just a tad? By that I mean maybe consider adopting the People Magazine Rule of Editing. In other words, make 'em short enough yet long enough to be read during the time it takes to have a normal bowel movement.
Just consider it...
I don't know about sporty. I will try sending him a message.
My take on the important stuff: GO DAWGS, yawn...Braves lose in post-season again, Falcons continue extension of losing their fair-weather fans (moi)!
As far as Harris Neck is concerned it does not come under the National Parks but rather as a 'Wildlife Refuge' under the operations of the US Fish & Wildlife Service which is a separate bureau/office under the US Department of the Interior ; http://www.doi.gov/index.cfm

A friend of mine is with the Parks Service in New Mexico. She has spent the past 25yrs of her career documenting and protecting a site from 'looters' and overgrazing. Yes, she'd love to get her paycheck but right now she's far more concerned about 'the site'. She went into work prepared to continue doing her job only to be told she would not be able to be armed to protect herself plus she no longer had arrest powers under the government shutdown. Rather than risk her life she has gone to visit her parents in hopes that the visit will be cut short. (I hope she doesn't hold her breath)

Sent a message to SF3 an hour or two ago. Nothing yet. I did notice from a previous blog that he went to an extensive tail gate cooker a while back. And...for some reason I cannot locate Rachel. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
