Burns’s Leftism is on open display in his National Parks and Dust Bowl documentaries. I don’t mind watching them, but it’s kind of like picking croutons (I don’t like croutons) out of my salad.
Like a lot of people I've enjoyed Burns's docs knowing that he was a liberal. But even during his doc about the national park system some historians he quoted balked at the idea that national parks is America's best idea. My wife and I love the nat. parks, and we've visited many of them in the last ten years. But any person, like Burns, who thinks the park system is America's best idea thoroughly delineates the difference between a soft-headed lib like Burns and conservatives.
