How do we put up with this? Sigh. It’s like some kind of Stockholm Syndrome or something. Burnside and Biltmore Parks are among our nicests, is it so bad that their are cars parked there?


Of course it is. This is ridiculous, and it is equally as ridiculous over at Cathedral Square. I mean, you can see the cars parked in Cathedral Square from space!

So who do these cars belong to? Who said they can park there? And who can put an end to it? Anyone?
