Gioia: Put Jumbotrons in Parks for Obama Inauguration
Gioia's office says this would be "in the tradition of New Yorkers celebrating historic achievements together like the end of World War II, the moon landings, and countless sports titles," though we don't recall watching any of these on Jumbotrons, except perhaps as part of a patriotic montage at the Super Bowl. Speaking of the Super Bowl, could we leave the TVs up after the Inauguration so we could watch that, too? And let us have open containers (and tapped kegs) in Central Park, or wherever feasible, just for that one day. We know Bloomberg's cool with public drinking.
