LINCOLN PARK - THE ONLY THING WORSE THAN THE SMELL ASSOCIATED WITH THIS DEAL IS THE LACK OF INTEREST BY THE PEOPLE

I was poised to write UT Board of Regents' General Counsel that UT was in for a battle which would bring nothing but humiliation to the Board.

The argument against the deal is simple.  But who is arguing it?  As far as I can discover - no one.  There is no organized group willing to do anything more than type nonsense on the internet.  There is no lawyer willing to help.

My letter would have actually made things worse once they realized there is no organized protest to the deal.  Without the blogs the issue would be nonexistent.

If some group exists out there and want to sent UT a message here is Francie Frederick'ss email.

But mind you - if you intend to send some moronic threat letter with no evidence of a meaningful organized group backing your statements, you will only empower UT.  Once they know the community does not care, nothing will stop them.

I  considered a petition on Change.org, but decided that would be a mistake.  With all social media promoting the petition, I am willing to bet 20 signatures would be all we would get.  People only want to get involved if they can do it as an anony from their computer.  A petition with only 20 signatures, once again will tell UT there is no real opposition in Brownsville to their conduct.

So because of the disinterest of the people - kiss Lincoln Park goodbye.  The users of this park do not seem to want to save it.
