"John--I have no idea of how the NPS handles press releases, but in the outdoor industry such things are basically automatic (even with things like product recalls). This one has a bit of an aroma to it but if they intentionally left Kurt out…"

"That's an interesting bit of news. Of course you always have to delve beneath the surface in things like this. It may well be that Cash requested the transfer, but it seems highly suspicious. The position is a huge step down from being…"

"Interesting, and obviously not what one would describe as an "open door" policy. John, if they've got a motel room type peep hole, you may well darken the doors of headquarters but never again cross the threshold:). Jim Casada"

"This stinks to high heaven of subterfuge, rewriting of history, CYA to the nth degree, and much more. It would probably take a dedicated investigative journalist (or maybe a bunch of them) to get to the bottom of this, but based on an ample amount…"
