Seems that the National Mall isn't closed to everyone. Just to some of us.
Some animals are more equal than others.
Since "there isn't any money" is the excuse to close all the parks, then how can there be money to have or deal with the rally?

So only "approved" people can use the parks?
Selective enforcement of the law is one definition of tyrrany.
