As we prepare to leave Philly after attending the US Open Golf Tournament, I peruse the Journal on line and see the Mayor is getting lots of pushback on his plan for the Rio Grande's Bosque. His vision for the river is to change it from one of the few relatively urban wild rivers in the US to a heavily manicured landscape. My advice to him is to leave it alone as there are many other things that could be done other than ruining this natural waterway. The pictures in the Journal showed Berry in a white shirt and tie out on the river bank. That said a lot!
How about changing your vision away from the river to building a new all purpose arena downtown? That would be a good thing to do.
