Not So Fast on "National Park" Name Change

New, 3 comments

So were we a little naive to think that that proposed name upgrade to Golden Gate National Recreation Area might actually go without controversy? In fact, not even a week passed before dog walkers began baying at the moon in protest. At issue: the rechristening as a "national park" would utterly ruin the right of dogs to run free in the park, or at least make it easier for the government to do said ruining. The dogs — they will have their day. [Mercury News]
