The Age of Hypocrisy Dies with Obama's White House

"We've seen how disinformation can spread so easily online. Anything can become viral and spread out of control. These made up stories by the Post will appear before millions of people around the world; they will believe it regardless of their validity. The retractions will not get the same kind of exposure.

So the Post has more incentive to lie than tell the truth.

We are now living in an age where real journalism is no longer needed. Papers can spread open lies, get the clicks and ad dollars they want, and not even pay for their crimes."

Prospect Park celebrates 150 years

A Brooklyn without a Prospect Park? Fuggedaboutit.
Brooklynites are ringing in the new year just as Prospect Park, the borough’s crown jewel, is ramping up to celebrate 150 years as a place to relax, play and experience nature. In fact, the sprawling 526-plus acre green space still serves many of the same functions it was originally designed for.
Created before Brooklyn was officially part of New York City, Prospect Park was designed and constructed from 1865 to 1895 by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux — who also designed Central Park. The park, which opened to the public in 1867 before construction was complete, was designed for many of the same things it’s used for today.
