Editor’s note: Sometime-PT Correspondent Jeff Pinyot, President of Eco Parking Lights, posted a commentary on the IPI website (Parking Matters: The Blog) that piqued my curiosity. He seems to, relatively successfully, hold both sides of a controversy. Here’s his blog posting without IPI editing, followed by my comments. JVH
In the September issue of Parking Today, I reprinted a commentary by Jeff Pinyot with notes (above) that some may have considered a negative bend towards the editorial process of the IPI. I in no way intended it to be received in that manner. I simply reprinted Jeff’s original editorial as it was originally written before editing by the IPI as I felt it gave me more material to comment on in its longer version and if compared with the original blog readers would understand that I was working off an original version supplied by Jeff.
I am sorry if any of the IPI management, board, editors, or membership felt put upon by my comments above. Mea Culpa
