    Why do I suspect there will be a heavy police presence there?

    Besides giving the kids tips on how to shoot a basketball, the Brooklyn Nets would do well to advise their fans to concentrate in school, do their homework, and spend at least an hour every day reading a book.

    Oops, I forgot; Brooklyn Heights has no library worthy of the name, other NYC libraries are being shuttered, and that big one on Fifth Avenue is having its books shipped 60 miles away to a secure site in New Jersey so that it can be turned into a glorified Beaux Arts cafe.

    Terrific that we can build athletic facilities and get sports teams to give kids sports tutorials. Easier than the kids themselves doing the often frustrating and slow slog of building and educating their minds.

    He’s a point guard, right?

    This is now a library thread? Oh brother.

    If Claude wants to get lots of traffic on the BHB, just put the words “Pier 2″ in every headline. A failsafe lightning rod.

    Because it’s going to draw a crowd of more than a certain number of people, which by law requires a police presence.

    Or were you examining some other mental connection you made?

  • B.

    No, it was a brain vs. brawn thread or, if you would like, a ball-bouncing vs. book- reading thread. The library was used to illustrate our upside- down priorities. We complain when the kids grow up and can’t find jobs or when police officers have to guard athletic facilities, but really the problem is in lax early parenting and training.
