Some Arizonans are determined to despoil it. From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
There’s a potentially harmful initiative on the November ballot that asks voters to amend the Arizona Constitution in an attempt to take jurisdiction over the Grand Canyon. That’s right, Arizona lawmakers want to lay claim to one of the seven natural wonders of the world so they can open up millions of acres to livestock grazing, logging, mining and who knows what else.
I’ve been there twice, once to the South Rim and once to the much-less-visited North Rim.
I find this effort appalling and barbarous.
