Letters to the Editor

Alley oops

John W. Hilmes September 14th, 2011

Let me see if I understand this (News, Clifton Adcock, “Walk the line,” Aug. 31, Gazette): MAPS 3 park subcommittee member Michelle Martin-Coyne, the wife of The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, wants to walk from Flaming Lips Alley to the proposed (Mick Cornett/ Larry Nichols park) Core to Shore park and the new convention center is in her way?

What? All over the city, we have inventions called traffic control systems and sidewalks to help her.

If people are dumb enough to purchase those overpriced, poorly located tiny boxes that pass for housing near Bricktown, just so they can walk to the park, then they need to question their own desire to walk. They need vehicles just to purchase groceries, much less anything else.

What does Mrs. Coyne think of that six-lane boulevard running through the center of the park? What is she smoking?
