Those are the words Seth Rogovoy uses to describe Mayor William Hallenbeck, Jr., in a piece posted on Imby: "Mayor says dogs can't visit departed loved ones." Rogovoy is reacting, of course, to the mayor's apparent commitment to banning dogs from as many places in the city as he can.
Gossips learned yesterday that, at the same time the "No Dogs Allowed" signs went up around the Public Square (a.k.a. Seventh Street Park), one was also posted at the entrance to Promenade Hill. That sign has since been replaced, as have the signs at the Public Square, with one that warns of the health hazards of dog waste.
