A rallying cry

This from an opponent to the portion of the planned Bruce Freeman rail trail that would go through Sudbury:

My whole theory is: Go to the gym that you got the membership for and that you know you are not using[.]

None of the trail opponents cover themselves in glory in today's article in the Globe. A nervous owner of a 100-acre estate worries about the lost solitude. (People? Not people!) Opponents threaten to build affordable housing. (Not just people, poor people!) A woman worries that should she be threatened by any of the ruffians that she expects will frequent the rail trail, it's so desolate that no-one will hear her scream. (People, but bad people, and not any other people who might help people.)

Has to be read to be believed, all the way to the end.

There ought to be a t-shirt: Go to the gym.
