Don't Fix it if it Ain't Broke

To Whom it May Concern,

Livingston Skatepark is the Stonehenge of stoke. Conceived and executed by Ian Urquhart before he died, it's stood the test of skateboard time. I myself have slept in the bushes there and had the time of my life. Let skaters build skateparks and everything is kosher. When councils and fat contractors see money, they could care less about making something epic for kids to ride. Livingston is forever. You goon that and there'll be hell to pay. Red tape, cops, and shoddy construction just makes aimless kids—who already have nothing—get mad and start busting things. Livingston is one of a kind. Don't fix it if it ain't broke. —Jake Phelps
