    Maybe we could just ‘forget about it’ — on the re-location of David Arm’weak’s “X-treme Park”. Within 3 months of its completion some kind from Tennessee near killed himself resulting in a liability settlement. No one knows how much of the public’s money is spent ‘un-sprayng’ the ‘spray-paint’ art [sic]. I don’t think the City of Louisville will evaporate or even shed more than a few tears if this ‘thing’ was history.
