Take it or leave it

There’s a wonderful miniseries running on PBS right now — “The National Parks: America’s Best Idea.”

I just want to mention it for the benefit of those who are interested in such things but might have overlooked this program. Those of you who aren’t interested in such things, move along.

I understand it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Some folks don’t swoon over spectacular scenery or get weak-kneed in the face of nature on a grand scale. Some folks don’t care about how our national parks came to be. Some folks don’t care about preserving and protecting chunks of America’s natural beauty and environment and ecosystems and history for future generations. Hey, that’s okay. This film’s not for you. I understand. (Well, actually I don’t, but that’s not your problem.)

But if you happen to care about hopelessly sentimental, impractical, idealistic, magnificent, spiritual junk like national parks, you might want to catch this show.
