8/30    All right, I googled for the "$8 million" to re-sod Central Park,
        but I didn't find anything.  Please help.

           They say 18 million.  whatever.
           \_ What's your problem?  I asked nicely.
              \_ ok, sorry.  nothing personal, i just hate everyone.
        \_ 100,000 protestors... 100,000 America-hating liberals, all in one
           convenient location, in a major landmark of a city known to be a
           terrorist target. What a waste of opportunity!
           \_ This joke telegraphed itself about a mile ahead. I was
              waiting looking at my watch for this sad mule to finally
              pull into the freaking station and ring the bell, already. --acs
              \_ Sorry. Wasn't feeling very sassy today.

1/4     Why the fascination with blowing up airplanes? Airports have tight
        security. It doesn't seem worth it. It's far easier to derail a
        train or set off explosives in a crowded place like a theater or
        sporting event. As many or more people will be killed and it will
        still make the news. I don't get why all of our security, and
        apprently much of the terrorist's resources, is focused on airplanes.

Keep off the grass in Central Park, judge tells protesters THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A federal judge refused Monday to allow a large rally on Central Parks Great Lawn during the Republican National Convention, but urged protesters and the city to work toward a compromise. This court cannot blind itself to the daunting security concerns facing this city during the Republican National Convention, said US District Judge William H Pauley III. Pauley also concurred with the citys concern that the Saturday rally by a projected 75,000 people and another for 250,000 people on Sunday by United for Peace and Justice could ruin the Great Lawn, which was restored in 1997 at a cost of more than $18 million. A state court hearing is scheduled Tuesday on a United for Peace and Justice lawsuit. In the federal case brought by the anti-war ANSWER coalition and the National Council of Arab Americans, Pauley urged both sides to bridge their differences and fashion a revised permit that would allow a political assembly on the Great Lawn. He noted that neither side had negotiated revisions of the permit application that would allow use of the lawn before the lawsuit was filed. The lack of engagement between the parties prior to this lawsuit contributed to each sides failure to appreciate the significance of the Great Lawn to the other, Pauley wrote. During arguments Friday, Brian Becker, national coordinator for the ANSWER coalition, characterized the Great Lawn as the heart and soul of New York City, a symbolic civil rights rally point on the 41st anniversary of the 1963 civil rights march on Washington led by Martin Luther King Jr. Gail Donoghue, special assistant to the citys corporation counsel, had argued Friday that the city treated all protest groups equally and fairly when it rejected five applications to use the lawn during the convention. ANSWER and the National Council of Arab Americans had asked Pauley to order the city to issue a permit, saying tens of thousands of people gather on the lawn for concerts each year. Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, lawyer for the Partnership for Civil Justice and the National Lawyers Guild, said it was a shame for New York City and frankly for the people of the United States that the Great Lawn was ruled off limits. She suggested that Central Park might find itself the site of spontaneous demonstrations. People are coming to New York City to protest and people will use Central Park as people have always used Central Park, she said. Theres no doubt people will be in Central Park expressing their political point of view. I think that thousands of people are coming to New York and many of them will go to Central Park and we believe it is their right to go to Central Park, he said. Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe said in a statement that despite the late date, the city remained willing to discuss an alternative park location where the demonstration could be held. Meanwhile, Still We Rise, a coalition of roughly 50 New York City community groups, detailed plans Monday for a march and rally on Aug. We are bringing the New York that wont be seen during the Republican National Convention to their doorstep and we will be highlighting the issues that are the most important to most Americans, said Jessie McDonald from the Bronx-based Mothers on the Move. The group said it received the proper permits for both the march and the rally.
