Those Who Cannot Remember the Past Are Condemned To Repeat It

The quote from George Santayana is so appropriate for this:

Obviously someone cannot remember why the park that was originally a motorcycle park got closed. Letting people acccept hazards at their own risk. During that time period the yellow pages weren't 3/4 filled full of lawyers. Evil Knievel was still doing tricks. Motocross was on the cusp of Xtreme sports.

Now we sue for someone letting their dog take a shiittee in our yard. It is extremely unfortunate that we actually think those that partake in this endeavor will actually know what 'ability' they can ride at. I hope for all those that enjoy Landahl Park take a second look into the past of the park and wake up to the future.

Because if you honestly think a 'warning sign' will stand up to closure your wrong.
