Another stroll down memory lane: Remember the Post and that “Curfew” nonsense almost a year ago?

[Please note: The blog post following is from February 2nd, 2016.]

Hard to believe, it’s almost 1 year since that “curfew” nonsense. Readers of this blog then learned about loaded language and other techniques used to confuse the public.

Update Redux: For the third time in a row, the print edition of The Palm Beach Post used the word ‘curfew’ vis-à-vis the Lake Worth City Commission meeting tonight [2/2/2016]. The City Commission is considering an “Ordinance”—not a ‘curfew’ as most people understand the word to mean.

Have been getting pictures from all over the planet Earth, including from some of my blog readers, of parks being closed to the public and/or ordinances to control who uses a park during certain times of the day. It’s not unusual despite what some protesters and others try to claim. It’s certainly not “draconian”, or “criminalizing” people, or even “throwing the baby out with the bathwater”, whatever that is supposed to mean. Hope you’re having fun on vacation or your business travel. Sincerely, Wes.

Hope you’re all having a good time!

Here’s another one!

Translation: “Opening hours of the fountain gardens”. Again, no mention of a ‘curfew’.

Central Park CLOSED!
