Defending The Park

This evening at 6:00 p.m., City Council's Park and Recreation Committee will hold a discussion on the dams in Lehigh Parkway. I will be there to defend the dam at the Robin Hood Bridge. Wildlands Conservancy and assorted environmental types will be there to promote their agendas. The magnificent park has been vandalized by special interests for several decades. Three WPA structures have been buried rather than maintained. Christmas lights have been strung to monetize the park during the holiday season. The steel bridge was allowed to rust away, ending 70 years of a beautiful ride through the park. Because of the park's abundantly designed beauty, it still manages to bestow tranquility onto it's visitors, but it deserves more respect than now being a workshop for assorted special interests.

Aren't you a special interest with a very narrow view of who the park serves and the ecosystem services it performs? In fact, to me, you seem to have the narrowest view of any other interest group.

@2:06, i'm defending the beauty and ambience, which i think is the most important thing to most people who visit the park. do not reply, i was glad to present your point, but now it's made.

#9:01, i agree with that. it's colds and flu that scare me, however, it becomes very awkward in a public setting not to shake. no offense meant.
