    are noteworthy and worthy of your own diary's posting on same, ban nock. You have the background, obviously, and interest and talent to write such, and given what you just commented on says as much. So to suggest an answer to your opening remark. . .the best way to go about it is post a diary, just like you did in this comment, only expand it. I have worked at the Grand Canyon for many, many years, mainly in an educational outreach program solely endorsed by the NPS. My major gripe with the park service is how its agency continues to dodge the NOISE POLLUTION problem over the canyon, which, to me, constitutes refusing permits to the omnipotent (seemingly that) air-tour operators, who, otherwise, continue to back down the NPS on this matter. Try backpacking or hiking in the bliss and solitude of the inner canyon and having to put up with constant droning. When the NPS runs to the FAA and wants its agency to help out, the FAA says it's the NPS' problem, not really a matter of airspace. But it's both. Yet someone's hands get greased with money whenever such stuff is going on. Ergo, nothing is being done about it. That Grand Canyon West country is replete with the nosiest air traffic corridor of them all, and the Hualapai Indian Reservation and its tribal council sanctions it. (continued in the next commentary). . .

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
