Maybe Houston’s Hermann Park Would Be Less Crowded If People Had Other Parks To Visit


 The Houston Chronicle today has two stories about parks in Houston.

One story is about how hard it can be to find a parking space on busy days at our very nice Hermann Park.

The other story is abut the refusal of developers to include enough park space in new housing plans or to help pay for new park space in Houston.

Maybe not enough parks out by where people live in one reason Hermann Park is so crowded.

According to Democratic Houston City Controller and possible Houston Mayoral candidate Annise Parker, politics is about what is “achievable.” 

Building huge Nero-like sports stadiums was achievable in Houston so we now have those things.  Making Houston a nice city to live is maybe not so achievable.

It all makes sense. It’s all about good solid achievable pragmatic common sense—What other logic or motive could exist in the world?  

And who defines what good solid achievable pragmatic common sense is?

Well, you can bet it is most often going to be defined by people already doing well in the world.
