Putting a national park on the moon is sheer lunacy

So, Rep. Donna Edwards wants to spend who knows how much money we don't have creating and protecting a park on the moon ("Md. Congresswoman proposes Apollo national park on the moon," July 10).

Really?

How are you going to accomplish that? And among the treasured artifacts requiring this protection are golf balls. Do we even know where they are?

This is a stunning example of the intellect of our politicians.
