Yellowstone is a unique park because of it's geology. The wildlife is a nice sideshow but I wonder how many people come to see the wildlife? How many come to see bears?
As I understand it, the idea was to keep Yellowstone as close to original... at least when the white man discovered it... without endangering tourists. But when that was decided people were mostly non-urban and had a little sense about wild animals.
My favorite Yellowstone story is the ranger catching a woman painting her kids face with honey to get a picture of a bear licking the kid's face.

And one more thing - why is it one guy's decision?
He runs the park, who else would?
