This post at Reason magazine's blog, Hit and Run, discusses how San Diego cannot afford to have staff at skate parks. The point is that people are actually enjoying themselves doing things there they could not before. This comment is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time.

THIS ... IS ... SAN DIEGO!!!
