We hesitate to inform you

So elegant in its simplicity: A card from the DWP arrived in my mailbox, informing me of a "Meeting Cancellation."

Due to new and unresolved information and developments, the Elysian Reservoir Community Worskhop originally scheduled for June 16, 2007 has been postponed until September. A new notice will be sent closer to the future date. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. [End of communication]

Oh, do tell, really!

I do mean really. I want to know. Are there giant squid?

If you're just tuning in, the "workshop" involves plans for the reservoir in Elysian Park. Some want to can it under aluminum, some would like green space above it (count me in that group), some want it stocked with freshwater sharks like Lake Nicaragua.
