Jimmy Breslin Gets It

In 1773, they risked lives to speak out
Excerpt: "The parade is supposed to pass Madison Square Garden on the Sunday before the convention. That is as it should be. The crowd can be large, over 250,000; the Republicans are not popular here. The protest committee wanted to walk past the Garden and go straight up to Central Park. The mayor and the police commissioner say that Central Park cannot be used because too many feet would hurt the grass. This is an absolutely insane statement."
