Insult to Injury

It's been a long month, and finally Halloween sends us into the new phase, wondering what in tarnation is going on in this town.

As part of our ongoing effort to play by the rules and help save an historic park, Save Libertyland! has to date accomplished the following:

1) Rescued the Carousel & Pippin -- two priceless historic artifacts -- from demolition and/or auction

2) Helped secure votes in favor of preserving these artifacts, from both the County Commission and City Council

3) Helped provide for a feasibility study to be conducted on the historic Carousel & Pippin

So, with this in mind, imagine the flummox-ability of being told that Save Libertyland! can no longer take a walk through the park as has been done in the past to gauge condition of the rides.

Oh, and I almost forgot: We own the Pippin!

If it's a question of likability, that doesn't fly -- likability is certainly no deciding factor in Memphis. The recent election proves that.
