Re: “Privatizing the Parks?

It's amazing how people with too much time on their hands, who claim to represent the community can cast despair on a situation or demean well intended efforts, for the sake of gaining an audience. In the big picture, it's going to take a collaborative effort between the City, the community, private entities and nonprofit organizations to achieve the kind of change that Oakland deserves. While the process may not be perfect, the idea of teaching teens sustainable growth techniques and exposing them to community based businesses has infinitely more value than standing on the sideline with misinformation or limited information and taking pot shots. It's much harder to build something than it is to tear it down. Anybody who has built something understands that; anybody who hasn't does not. Work to make an imperfect system better or we'll never have anything.
