I came across this AP news article this morning:
News from The Associated Press
While the main topic is disheartening (and unsurprising that once again people are abusing their power), I am left wondering about this quote:
"One longtime human resources official interviewed by investigators said a "laissez faire" attitude exists of "what happens on the river, stays on the river." Grand Canyon officials until recently allowed river rafters to bring alcohol on the trips."
I think that I would have come across this topic on the buzz already if booze was banned in the canyon. I thought we just retired that thread- and I am not sure if I would want to spend a few weeks of the grand if I couldn't drink my PBR's!
