(Exceptionally negative reaction to the big fence put up so no one in Prospect Park could get the slightest glimpse of the Bob Dylan concert continues.) “The fence was an abomination, a real slap in the face of taxpayers. The bandshell is in a public park; it’s not a private concert hall. If you feel the same way, send your comments to: celebrate@briconline.org. Let Celebrate Brooklyn know that those who couldn’t afford tickets should not have had their view blocked.”–Bob Dylan Does Prospect Park

    Um, did the wall prevent the music from being heard outside the shell? If so, then people who heard his music for free are griping that they didn’t get to see a glimpse of Dylan from 600 feet away?

    Really? Inflation, Russia, Musharaf, and Iraq were all in the headlines today, yet this is what gets people in a stir?

    Omigod! It was a benefit to raise money to keep Celebrate Brooklyn a free concert series. How stupid can you get?
