The Disneyfication of our national parks?

So warns PEER, or Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, in this e-mailed warning I received this morning. For me, and many others, visiting a National Park System unit, whether it was Saguaro National Park, or Petrified Forest, or Craters of the Moon, or Colonial (Yorktown) has always been about hearing the sounds of wild nature, not the noise pollution of a cell phone chirping. Yet, that seems to the National Park Service leadership's goal - the cyber wiring of our national parks.
