Apparently, Alaska lawmakers have proposed a federal takeover of Central Park in an effort to highlight the federal government’s prohibition on drilling for oil in ANWR. From the Anchorage Daily News:
Rep. Kyle Johansen, the lead sponsor of HJR31, says such a takeover would never happen. But he wanted an extreme example to make a point about the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and its being off limits to development.
In other news, logic just died.
