The Times reported on the city's plan to develop the future of playgrounds. Although the plan does seem somewhat ridiculous–adult playground attendants?–if you are a TimesSelect member, take a look at Judith Warner's blog bashing the plan and the overwhelming response that it inspired. It seems like even readers of the Times aren't ready to let go of the playgrounds of the past.
What is more interesting to me than this debate is the strength and popularity of Warner's blog. She is a strong writer for sure, but she is also a very good blogger. Though she writes infrequently on education, one can easily imagine how her style could be translated into an education themed blog.
