Fellow community gardeners: Note what gardening in NYC does to your brain,
as exemplified by Adam's preceding prose.

Fellow community gardeners: Here in Philly we counter these air strikes by
gathering free manure from local stables and launching it at our attackers
from low-tech, high power catapults made from abandoned car parts (seat
springs, chasis, wheels, etc.) The Mayor's attempt to remove these abandoned
cars is NOT to make good by reducing blight, but to take away our defense
resources. Anyway, covering the windshield's of attacking air craft causes
them to crash. City Hall Assassin Squad (CHASS) corpses are promptly
composted in plots and the following season tobacco is grown, then sold to
NYC detectives. Ah, the cycles of nature.
Pour se garder sain d'esprit, il faut deconner de temps en temps.
