Who's Park Is It?

 Protect Your Parks Postcards which were written to senators and the president against the bill that will allow a pipeline right of way under Jacob Riis Beach and the introduction of private industrial infrastructure, pipelines and a metering and regulating station into Floyd Bennett Field.

Over in Queens they too will fight for their park, not against natural gas facilities but a new Soccer Stadium. I like their spirit and their signs as well. The same could be held up over here in Floyd Bennett Field or Jacob Riis Beach. "Who's Park? Our Park" and "No Land Grab for Corporate Profit". But I really like that one that says "Park Not for Sale".

Who's park is it? It's a good question for the mayor and other politicians about Flushing Meadows-Corona Park . And over at Floyd Bennett Field it's a good question for the National Park Service as well. Thousands of people signed various petitions against HR2606. Hundreds wrote letters. And one politician said no too.

Good for her. So sad she was the only one.

Girl...i think you used to know you were a genius when the confederacy of dunces was against you, but now? Anything goes.
