times before. And you, Bill, Rick and the rest are right there's not
enough scientific data and we need studies. So they'll want to study
it. I'm guessing they'll ban hammocks while they do that.
Prohibition is the default option in government decisionmaking, after
all. And government studies (likes the ones done for the Park
Service) can take years.
I'm hoping that if we approach these people with something workable
we can avoid the prohibition part in the interim.
