When will the governor ever learn? To the extent that you can actually get away with budget cuts at all, it has to be on the backs of the poor or other disenfranchised groups that have little or no voice (i.e., money). Close parks used by the middle class (or even better off) and you have to contend with nasty blowback. Would any of these (or these) park protesters be in the streets if, say, funding was cut for programs for the homeless? Or school lunch programs for the poor? Of course not. Silly Blago.
