People in Public, Cuting Corners, Cars aren’t Green, Watch This; The Weekly Chatter

Gloria Veltman, in the Rose Street Ramblings series in the RE, recently wrote A connoisseur of parks and playgrounds where she describes her summer visiting playgrounds and parks in Traverse City with her grand-niece. It’s a expectantly nostalgic, but she ends with a great pitch: “When I start grumping about paying my taxes, most recently my summer property taxes, I remind myself how much I like good roads to drive on, someone to respond if I call 9-1-1, what a resource we have in our library system, and last but not least, our great parks and playgrounds in this beautiful part of the world that we get to call home.

Indeed. More people in public is the goal. (Park Portraits)

Weekly Chatter

  • The Money Pit: “In a lifetime of car ownership, an American family will likely “invest” almost $1 million in its vehicles.”

Twitterville:

To wrap, a warning. Primarily, it’s a warning about driving. Driving two-ton transport pods is dangerous and the slightest distraction can lead to nasty consequences. The good news? Deaths related to traffic crashes was the lowest since 1950’s in 2009 .

Still, it’s dangerous by design out-there. The second warning is that the video below is disturbing, graphic and aimed to shock. Good luck with that.

Have a weekend
