SECRETARY of the Interior Manuel Lujan only wants the best deal he can get on a concessionaire's holdings at Yosemite National Park. And that's OK. But the way he is going about it sometimes sounds suspiciously like Japan-bashing.
The fuss involves the sale of MCA Inc., an entertainment giant, to Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., an electronics giant. With MCA go the hotels, restaurants and other enterprises operated by Yosemite Park & Curry Co., whose contract with the Park Service expires in 1993.
Matsushita recognized that foreign ownership of property at Yosemite might not look good. So it decided early on to try to sell Curry Co. to an American buyer and put interim profits in escrow for a park foundation.
