I think you should stop using this repetitive phrase "Madison's newest park" in all of your articles. First of all, it is not a park. It is a vacant lot. Second of all, it is not new. It was purchased nearly three years ago and sat vacant with no plan since. There is nothing new about it and nothing park about it.

Matt: Did you pick the name Constitution Park for Madison's newest park? Good job as we like the Constitution Park name. It literally means "something that is good for your constitution", usually a common euphemism for the first visit to the restroom for a bowel movement. As long as they have Porto-Potties or restrooms on site, the name should remain. We envision a lot of early morning residents visiting madison's newest park to go for a morning walk and do their morning constitution while there. Good progress and movement all the way around.

No I did not pick the name. If it was up to me, the name would have been "FOR SALE".

Plan on building an XGames extreme theme park there. Fill in all the wet lands and we are good to go. Got the idea from the blazing of miles of trails for extreme mountain biking up in the Rockland Nature Preserve that the Town okeyed.
