Governor Closing New York's Parks

Our governor (I don't dare tell you what I really think of this guy) has decided to close a number of state parks for budgetary reasons.

This includes Thacher State Park west of Albany - a place I bring students to every year for my geology classes.  Thacher is a beautiful place as well as a premier geologic locality with incredible exposures of Devonian Helderberg Group limestones and fossils.  Here's an online petition if you'd like to express your displeasure.
