  1. Nice softball interview. Only thing missing was asking the boss why they screwed the pooch with the Gatlinburg fire? The NPS position of not attacking the Chimney Tops 2 fire with all they had and all they get there within 24 hours. They’re sitting on their hands have now exceeded the cost it took to clean up Katrina. Those involved in that decision to do nothing should be summarily discharged and prosecuted.
