I'm not in the mood. Here's the link.
Here's the basics:
The tiny downtown park at Pacific Avenue and South 21st Street was little noticed by its owner before it spent four months as a campsite for the local Occupy Wall Street offshoot.Give me a break.
Now the park’s owner, the Washington State Department of Transportation, is worried about liability and looking for buyers.
“I would say the whole Occupy Tacoma thing just sort of called it to our attention,” WSDOT spokesman Steve Pierce said. “We’re certainly not in the park business.”
In the meantime, the public is barred indefinitely from Don Pugnetti Park. A fence blocks access.
Someone could hurt themselves at the park and the state could be held liable, Pierce said. While that’s been true for years, he said Occupy Tacoma put a spotlight on the concern.
I would love to hear how this would play out if there were teabaggers instead of OWS people. Ya know, the teabaggers with guns and spitting on Democratic congressmen.
