From The Z Factor Blog: Under the guise of humanitarianism?

From The Z Factor Blog:

 Again, New York is loosing another quintessential part of the city. I myself am an advocate for animal rights and perhaps the carriage drivers should take better care of the horses however, there is nothing more romantic than a horse drawn carriage ride through and along Central Park. It is expensive but something one should do if you are visiting the city. As a peace offering the mayor is offering the carriage drivers green taxi medallions, but these are horse people and I assume they are not happy about it. I can tell you from experience (when I owned a house I had a few as tenants) they are a breed unto themselves. So the theory is that the city wants the property where the stables are to redevelop into more condo cancer. What else is new?…

In the meantime I am entertaining the idea of bringing this attraction to the new amusement park in Karpland. Only problem is the weather isn’t conducive for the horses. Perhaps we could use elephants? This will definitely attract tourists especially those who are looking for that romantic edge. All the honeymooners will flock here just to be dragged around by some poor beast that has been slated into forced labor. But until we can figure this out we can use umons. There is already in place a fleet of rickshaws employing several umons. This coincides with inventing viable employment that is essential for our development.

Stay tuned…
