  1. Dear Sir, why do you choose to post such a stream of negative news? You could use this forum to bring attention to the good things that are being done in parks citywide as well. Please consider it if only for balance and to not perpetuate the fear-mongering prevalent in mainstream media. Thank you for listening.
