    It sure beats any of California's State Parks, at least as far as management:



    SACRAMENTO California's parks system stashed away nearly $54 million even as it was cutting services and threatening to close parks, a revelation that prompted the resignation of the department's director Friday.

    The hoarded cash remained untapped while the California Department of Parks and Recreation painted a dire picture of the system's health, soliciting hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations in what was thought to be a desperate scramble to keep facilities open.

    True. The title can only be so long New York is a different forum. And those Mainers, you know, they won't change a thing. N'yuck N'yuck. Besides, no credit for fourth place - only the medal winners count
