Urban Prairieland Saved From Invading Hordes
Reader Dan Leathers alerts us to New York Supreme Court Justice Jacqueline Silbermann's decision barring protesters from gathering in Central Park next week:
The decision by New York Supreme Court Justice Jacqueline Silbermann is the latest in a running legal battle between the protest group and the city. She sided with city officials, who say they fear the grass on the park's Great Lawn would be damaged and security could not be ensured for the huge crowd.
Says Leathers: "That's right … grass > free speech/right to assemble in importance."
