Outside Looking In

Not this year.

It used to be standard news business fare on Independence Day, or one of the days leading up to it.

You would do a "live shot" from the pool and water slide area of Nay Aug Park in Scranton.  The shot would be filled with smoke from all the charcoal grills in the picnic areas.  It looked like fun.  It smelled even better.

Even though I'm not a summer guy and I loved it.  It was great to see everyone having fun, enjoying the weather, having some good food, hanging with friends.

The current situation keeps friends at a distance.  The pool leaks.  It won't open this year.  This is the city that pats itself on the back for painting crosswalks, but it can't fill the potholes.  The condition of the park is another story.

There's always next year.
