This morning my friend Martin Cox called me to tell me about what was going on at the lake. They (the City) were pulling out the lotus. Martin agreed to email me some details as there was no human way I could get down there except to close my eyes and imagine: grappling hooks, dumpsters, the city calling it a day for the lotus. Never mind that maybe four of them still were blooming. I am sure everyone is happier without a giant compost heap in the western petal of the lake.
