    Saw three Belgian tourists at Montague and Court, who’d decided to walk in the extreme heat to Prospect Park. I tried to dissuade them, citing the distance, but I guess they didn’t believe me. Last I saw, they were headed for Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenues. I hope their bodies get shipped home for burial.

    Good Morning Heights,

    We are looking to overhaul our bathroom and can’t seem to find a contractor that will return phone calls! Anyone know any great contractors out there to work with? I’ve got to replace my ancient shower soon!

    Many thanks,
    Cranberry Street

    I am a bit puzzled (and disappointed) that the Trayvon Martin rally at Cadman Plaza last Sunday was not covered. Especially in a blog on a neighborhood with such strong roots in the abolition and civil rights movement.

    He did great work finishing up and designing elements that our original contractor left undone. Tell him that Perry-Lynn recommended him.

    This story has been well covered by every media outlet in the country.

    I have a marvelous new invention which I call “The Portable Cloud”. While this looks like a regular umbrella, it is to be used when the temperatures are making us all miserable. What you do is open your umbrella on a bright sunny day, and voila!—Portable Cloud!

    I expect to make millions from this, unless Claude Scales gets to the Patent Office before I do…

    The temperature is 70 degrees and still the Brooklyn Heights Public Library closes at 1:00 today because of temperature – humidity restrictions. Absurd! And, for a public library, not in the public interest.
