Thankfully, mercifully, the Naperville Park District has chosen to catch its collective breath and not tear down paradise to put up a garden plot (oooh, wop wop wop, oooh). Royce Road, at least for now, will remain porta-potty/windsock/chicken wire/tarmac/compost/mulch mountain/irrigation/traffic/garden army/garden mess FREE. The gardeners will continue to raise cain, uh tomatoes, on an expanded West Street; the high school will get its much needed playing field; and the Naperville Cemetery, the catalyst in all of this, gets its land back for what IT needs most. Disaster averted, thanks to some last minute vigilance by some great friends in the 'hood. And Park District Commissioners willing to listen to reason, God bless 'em. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
So much for renaming this "The Park District Really Makes Me Furious" blog.
I'm leaning much more toward Reason Prevaileth. Or Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Wait a minute. Another writer stole THAT from me as well. First Julie and Julia. And now this? Definitely a conspiracy of title stealers.
