Just a little while ago I wrote you all a post that as late as  last year I 
STILL heard the NPS & Tourmobile doing the same thing.   Last spring I 
stood at Kennedy and heard the same thing as 20 years  ago.  They never stopped 
in 20 years.  It is institutional with the  NPS and has been continuing to 
go on for 20 years.
Your  Most Obedient Servant,

All well and god. Everyone is entitled to off the  cuff and 
unsupported opinions - this is an Internet discussion group for  gosh 
sakes.  If we can't throw stuff against the wall here, where can  we?

But you can see why your unsupported and increasingly  strident "the 
sky is falling because the tourmobiles have a lousy script  and I had 
a painful experience 20 years ago "  assertions that have  no 
relevance to GNMP museum - which you haven't visited -    bring you 
the type of reaction it does.

Take  Care
