"City pitching River Market parking lots to developers"

Maybe they give away low income neighborhoods to developers.

That's interesting. My northland neighborhood has a shitty old playground that is about the most basic thing you've ever seen. The one at Linwood and Indiana I drove by last week has tennis courts, a splash park, a climbing setup, new padded ground, drinking fountains.

What the hell is the bitching about?

They have a fucking playground. It's called the Country Club Plaza.

Where was the last park where the plastic playground equipment was torched and destroyed?
A never-ending battle to try to keep filling in behind the perpetual hole-digging machine.
