Point State Park is STILL CLOSED -- and work has not occured there in months

Do you know how to confuse a bunch of Philly baseball fans?

Put a big frickin fence around Point State Park -- for no reason.

This week the Philly fans are in Pittsburgh -- wishing to take in the sights. I saw dozens of the fans pressing their faces against the cyclone fences at the edge of Point State Park.

Meanwhile, nothing has happened there in months.

Joggers are blocked from the park. Cyclists are out of luck. Citizens are given the bird -- and this bird has nothing to do with geese -- every day that the park remains closed.

Meanwhile, new parks are opening.
'Disneyland' comes to Baghdad with multi-million pound entertainment park - Times Online Mr Werner, chairman of C3, a Los Angeles-based holding company for private equity firms, is pouring millions of dollars into developing the Baghdad Zoo and Entertainment Experience, a massive American-style amusement park that will feature a skateboard park, rides, a concert theatre and a museum. It is being designed by the firm that developed Disneyland. “The people need this kind of positive influence. It’s going to have a huge psychological impact,” Mr Werner said.
