Draining the last pool

68 days after it first accumulated in on a playground near the beach park, stagnant rain water is finally being drained out of by the authorities. I can’t be sure and perhaps it is a coincidence, but the pumps arrived the day after The News carried a picture of buffaloes standing placidly in the water. If the picture caused some bureaucrats or administrators to stir, then hurrah for the fourth estate! Unless you’re a buffalo, in which case you’d be peeved that your watering hole is no more.
