Re: Before you get your panties in a bunch. . .

It's definitely worth "getting your panties in a bunch". Ken Rockwell has to apply for a Commercial Use Authorization from the National Park Service. This is not a license to deprive someone of their first amendment rights, any more than he could obtain a license to deprive anyone of any of our other constitutional rights. He took your money and has an obligation to deliver. It's too bad that people don't want to press issues such as this - one reason so many of our rights seem to be slipping away from us. We're too lazy to fight- even if it means getting screwed by people like Ken. Use and exercise your rights - or lose them. You can go online to the US Forest service website and read up on Commercial Use authorization. Ken is taking your money and is responsible for seeing to it that you are completely satisfied. If you complain to the Park Service, they may be able to persuade him to drop his restriction. He may be a private commercial operator, but he's making use of public property to further his personal interests and must obey the law to maintain his license. Complaints will be considered and if enough people complain - or one is vocal enough - he can lose his license. You should file a complaint.

The elimination of the mirror has introduced a new concept into the interchangeable lens digital camera market - compactness (kind of like what happened when Oscar Barnack created the Leica).
