We drove down and filled the last parking spot on the left side of the street in front of the park. Borden was forced to park on the other side, in front of the tennis courts. This puts him away from the playground--a small triumph. He looked quite upset and even beside himself, as I saw when we drove past him in our other car. I'm kind of glad we haven't yet gotten around to selling the old car, which is now performing a vital civic duty. If someone can get there early enough to fill the only eight hour parking spot on the opposite side, he will be forced to park in two hour spaces.
I'm going down later to hold up a sign for a while, after I do a few things around here and do a little food shopping. It's important to keep up day to day activities while this is going on.
Organizers: They were here at dawn. I think one of them even stayed overnight. You can see Bordon's signs across the street.
Question: It's not as if the offices of the Tribune-Herald, our local paper, were far away from the action. Why no coverage as yet?
Borden has been flooding the Facebook site, Take Back Lincoln Park, with hate messages. I'm going to bring up the idea of starting a moderated blog that could simply block him but want to discuss this with a lot of people first. May or may not happen. In any case, it's easy to hide his Facebook messages, which is what I am doing. Some people are wasting their time engaging with him.
