Nickname

Do illicit trysts of an unusual variety ever occur at Sacramento's favorite treadmill? It's fun to imagine the potential, if not the probability. Because referring to the park as the surname of our 25th President is boring, because all former presidents are boring unless their names are Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln or Roosevelt.

But McKinley, upon a little bit less superficial examination, was sort of interesting. He was a proponent of the gold standard and a protectionist, and assassinated by an anarchist.

Any park named after such an illustrious career deserves a more entertaining name. Thus, someone I know proposes McKinky. Live dangerously. It's fun!
