Mayor: Tonight, we will discuss the construction of a new public park. Mr. Morgenstern will present the issue.
Mr. Morgenstern: It’s simple folks. If we put up a park, we’ll have more open space for our residents. The cons are pretty negligible, like construction noise. Lastly–and I wouldn’t even give this much thought, there’s been some concern that a park in our town would attract lots of homeless people.
Mayor: Now, given the park’s seemingly unanimous support, I think it’s time to open the discussion to hear what you all think the new park should include.
Mrs. Brown: I think that the park should have a new playground for the children.
Mayor: I agree, Mrs. Brown. A playground would be wonderful.
Voice:[from the back]Benches!
Mayor: Yes, of course, the park will include benches.
Voice: Lots of long, soft benches. And blankets, too!
Mayor: Who is saying that? Does anyone else have a suggestion?
Mr. Davis: How about a gazebo?
Voice: Yes, with benches inside! They’d stay dry in the rain!
Mayor: What? Who’s shouting?
Voice: Nobody! Continue building the park!
Mayor: My goodness. I’m sorry about this folks. Is there anyone else with a suggestion?
Voice: No dogs! Please no dogs!
