The NY Times online edition feature video today starts with a segment on the closing of the Empire skating rink in Brooklyn. Very sad. They do a series of interviews with local skaters there, and it hits a chord- how skating is in the hearts and souls of these people, and the loss of the rink means so much to them.
At what point is our beloved government going to step in and do something to promote activities that foster health and fitness in the battle against obesity?
Also interesting that one poster above notes they are going to start swimming at local pool since their rink closed, but around here at least, pools are closing too becuase they are so expensive to heat and maintain.
Are we really that impoverished?
