Status Symbols

The landmarks committee of the National Park System Advisory Board will decide whether or not to recommend the Montauk Lighthouse for national historic landmark status this week. If the group votes in favor of doing so, the next and final stop on the approval train is Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, who would make his decision in the next couple of months. It should be a no-brainer for the lighthouse to be granted this status. Unfortunately, brains seem to be in short supply in politics these days, so there's always a possibility (however small) that the site will be forced to make due with just being listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
