    Just saw this story on TV. Sometimes you just have to wonder about the sanity and hypocrisy of those who run our City government. The City is starting construction of a sanitation transfer station near one of the runways at LaGuardia Airport claiming it won’t attract geese and be a danger to planes taking off and landing. However, they are not considering sea gulls that will be attracted to the garbage.

    At the same time last year they slaughter hundreds of Canadian geese in Prospect Park and other places although the park is further than 7 miles from the airport and the geese posed no threat to anyone. The Prospect Park Administrator knew about the intended slaughter in advance and remained silent although she was retiring anyway.

    So now will they start slaughtering sea gulls as well? What are these people thinking?

        That’s what the City claims but it hasn’t convinced retired US Airways pilot Chester Sullenberger who has made several public statements against it.
