Here's a comment from Jose Cisneros, a former Park Superintendent:

Probably getting to be a good time to comment.   Dec. 27th deadline.  Here's one from Rawles Williams:

Wow.  Mr. Cisnero's comments are really surprising.  Why would stationing guards at this point encourage drug smugglers?  It's not like this place is exactly secret.
Wake me when it's time to go.

That is surprising. However, after reading this , it makes me highly doubtful that it was really him.
When I made my comment I could have used anyone's name, there was no verifying system in place.
I could have said I was Winston Churchhill and that I thought it was a very terrible yet delightfully wonderful idea.

FM, you could be right but I also think it is unlikely that someone would impersonate him in such a public and important forum.  Rawles took it seriously.  Rawles among many other things was our guide to the del Carmens and Maderas back in the 1990s.

Last chance today.  I just submitted my comment(s).  Apparently it takes a while to appear.  Deadline 11 pm Central Time.
