Where was our hero Big Crime Fightin' Jim Strickland? He didn't have the stones to support women's rights. Not a peep. He was afraid of drawing the ire of his republican puppet masters.
What are they doing next?
3million dollars would go a very long way towards building a garage that the zoo and ALLl patrons of Overton Park could use. Spending that money in any other way is a total waste and very shortsighted. Personally, I resent the belittling name calling of Midtown residents and the fact that our city council refuses to represent us . The local citizens have made it very clear that we want our Greensward saved. Our local wishes and needs should be listened to and placed above the occasional out -of -towners' who come in from Arkansas or Mississippi to visit the zoo.We pay taxes and we vote. It's really very simple. If the zoo needs extra parking 65 days out of the year and we the people need the Greensward 365 days out of the year then whose needs are greater ? We do not want our park turned into a parking lot! Build the garage and get it over with. $3 million is a great start.
I agree with Oak in so much that the establishment long ago figured out that if they don't assault the crowds as they did 40-50 years ago and if they continue their oppressive course unaffected there tends to be a dwindling.
So civil disobedience tailored to a specific action, (without bringing hardship on working people) and thereby resulting in mass arrests and the inevitable beatings that the media loves is one course.

I'd like a copy of one of the photos in the slide show -- who do I contact?
"A pleasant walk." LOL. Maybe you should convene a panel to tell all these folks how the experts do it. Make sure to invite your girlfriend from Canada
Clyde, it's not so funny when it's your mother is it?
