I need to focus on some other projects, not on posts. But this was a bit much for me
Itemized list: Repairs at Occupy Portland parks | kgw.com Portland
Looking at the list, quite a bit of this needed to be done anyway. It gets to be a bit much when they are blaming the leaves on the protesters! Damn them and their power to change the seasons!
This list is all well and good. But other than damage to the lawns, which were pretty trashed before the occupation, to my eyes the parks really look in pretty good shape.
These bathrooms are always trashed.
And there are a lot of leaves. I think they are kind of pretty.
Here’s the list, but what I want to see is what NORMAL park maintenance expenses for the winter are so we can compare… Only then can we really have a conversation.
