Nor do we think we are qualified to receive another offer we got from the government, a free cellphone. We so wanted to write them back and say their offer came too late as we already have a free cellphone as part of our son’s family plan. And frankly, we find dealing with him to be a whole lot easier than dealing with the government. He actually answers his telephone.
While much has been made of Cooperstown’s new on street paid parking, we have learned there is concern about it which we never even considered. In an online response to a recent article about the paid parking, we found the following comment to add to our food for thought. In part it read: “What is Cooperstown’s brilliant solution to putting the little piece of paper on a motorcycle?”
It is, we thought a good question. And it reminded us that when our son started working at Kenyon College, he was given a hang tag employee parking permit for his Vespa. That didn’t work then and we don’t think the little piece of paper is going to work now.
Of course we do think, once the problem of displaying the little piece of paper on a motorcycle is solved, the next question to arise would be: Does each motorcycle have to purchase its own paid parking? We have often noted that more than one motorcycle can be parked per space and if so, can they share of the cost of parking? It seems there are always questions in need of answers.
And while on the topic of paid parking, we were asked recently if we had participated in the new rage about town, namely the “Cooperstown Squat.” Not only had we not participated in it, we had no idea what it was.
