    “and you know how people are on the internet…they don’t know”

    Mike, you could have just called me out by name.

    Don’t insult the internet as a whole when it’s just ME that doesn’t know about the bottom button thing! :)

    Green Island Residents and Friends should go onto 508 to talk about what’s going on with Crompton Park this summer… as soon as we find out from the city what’s going on. =P
