The Pilgrims Were first to Validate Parking


The Pilgrims Were first to Validate Parking

I particularly like this article in May's PT. Our friendly canine auditor goes off the rails a bit with his questionable history of validations. Although I can visualize the captain of the Mayflower arguing over parking pricing at Plymouth Rock, and certainly the denizens of Baghdad by the Bay would negiotiate with Sir Francis Drake but I'm a bit skeptical of the description of our founding fathers arguing with a tipsy Ben Franklin over carriage and parking rights.

I've always said that people think there is something in the Consitiution, or was it the Magna Carta, that says parking should be "free," but I have never heard a hint that Tom, Jim, Ben and the boys gave a tinker's damn who paid for parking at the local saloon.
