Editorial: Congress should pass Manhattan NHP bill
The House on September 20 blocked bipartisan legislation to establish Manhattan Project National Historical Park. Leading the opposition was Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), who said the park would "celebrate" nuclear weapons.
Such a claim is ideological posturing run amok. National historical parks are opportunities for education. Kucinich's statement insulted the dedicated professionals in the National Park Service who responsibly interpret the events that shaped our country's history.
