Parks and recreation

New York’s Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation sells an annual pass that they call the Empire Passport. The pass gives your car access to most of the state parks, including one that I frequent, the Rockefeller State Park Preserve, so I buy one each year. I’m a little late, and this year’s just arrived in the mail.

It came with a letter on the office’s letterhead, which includes the governor’s name in the top right.Top of letter from NYS parks department Only, they’ve used Wite-Out to obliterate the recently resigned governor’s name, and have hand-written the name of the current one (click the image on the right to enlarge it). I applaud the avoidance of waste — there’s no reason to throw all that paper away just to re-print the governor’s name, not to mention to waste of money it would be.

Except, they misspelled it.

You’d think they might get the governor’s name right, hm?

Well, no matter; here’s a shot from a walk in Rockefeller this weekend:

Wait - they're still using preprinted stationary? It's not part of an image overlay in a print job?
