    I love that the deletion of the trail name is “stirring controversy”. It’s stirring memories of reading ‘1984’ for me. If MiniTru says it’s always been called ‘The Bloomingdale’, it must be so. Also, crime is down, unemployment is down, our leaders are patriots, those schools never existed, and wheat production is up 10%.

    “It’s an archipelago of green space. The ‘trail’ never encompassed the park-ness of it, …”

    I can’t begin to express just how much I hate crap like this. Pointless linguistic shenanigans for marketing purposes drive me insane.
