Some goofball vandalized one of the park benches next to the Seawall the other day; one of the wooden planks that formed the back of the bench was evidently just ripped off the metal frame. That's the kind of thing that doesn't accidentally happen. And it looks like someone punched thru the wall in the mens' restroom. I just can't understand why things like that have to happen. And, I am seeing more and more garbage in the park these days. People have picnics, they leave garbage behind. On the ground. Around the basketball courts, at any given time, you'll see empty sport drink bottles laying in the grass. I'd say that would be a good thing for our bicycle patrolmen to look into.

DFO: Few things irritate me more than senseless vandalism. If I was Ruler of the Universe, I'd crack down on vandals and make sport of them, mebbe throw them in stocks at the corner of the park and let little kids throw cabbage at them. As far as thoughtless park users leaving behind litter, the city should order the bike cops to cite them. It seems like a little matter. But it trashes our community. Rudy Giuliani understood the importance of cracking down on little things.
