Support Your Local Parks-- And Fire Away!

Despite the usual spate of breathless hyperbole ("This is an amazing surprise. It was there for so many years and people were sitting on it when it was a loaded cannon!) and misnomers ("Parks workers came upon a LIVE (emphasis mine) cannon ball loaded in a [Amer. Revolution-era?] cannon")...

...well ...this is still pretty cool.

But IMHO, this would have been even cooler, certainly-- had it been discovered during the "get tough on crime" mayoral terms of Rudy Giuliani.
