    not really, and you won’t find this on the msm-

    Sec. Zinke Will Spend The Government Shutdown Ensuring The WWII Memorial, National Parks, Stay Open
    The government might be shut down Saturday morning, but that did not stop Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke from doing his job.

    Early in the morning, Zinke could be found cleaning up trash on the National Mall and welcoming tours of schoolchildren to the World War II memorial with a smile.

    “We’re not putting up barricades,” Zinke told The Daily Caller in an interview. “Absolutely not. We’re passing out brochures until we run out of brochures. I’ll be out here everyday.”

    States and private partners are helping keep our parks accessible through #SchumersShutdown - Happy to announce Statue of Liberty will reopen soon.

    Can you think of any other time an appointee would do such a great thing?

    “The American public and especially our veterans who come to our nation’s capital should find war memorials and open-air parks open to the public,” Swift added. “Additionally, many of our National Parks, refuges and other public lands will still try to allow limited access wherever possible.”

    Swift pointed out that, while most parks will be accessible, they will not be full service. Any stations, stores and bathrooms that require staff attendance will not be operating because of the Parks Service staff on furlough. Private businesses within the parks, however, may be open depending on agreements worked out between them and the parks, as well as accessibility. Parks Service staff will not be opening roads that are closed from events such as heavy snow.
