    what i find most disterbing about this is that some pensil pusher decided it was a great idea to give stamp to parks instead of citisins like me who might use them . what would a stupid park do with stamps ? send the teetertotter a post card ? it is fooleshness and i have never seen such incompitance .

    mayor redfern please stop this madness and give the stamps to hard workers such as youres truley so that i can continue to efford all the letters i mail daily . i send letters each day to my brother and 5 sistirs and an old aleing mother who would be utterley heartbrokin if she did not receeve my daily updates . i would like to see a stupid park write the same letter 7 times in one day . i am not pleased mayor and i will remind you again that i am a tax payer .
