Former real estate developer Barry Montgomery who is, by my reckoning, 86-years-old, has sued Greenwich to prevent development of a park “because the cell towers located there are too dangerous for kids”.
Leaving aside the fact that Montgomery has long since passed the age where he need worry about having small children of his own, wouldn’t the saner approach be to keep his great-great grandchildren out of the park if he were actually worried about their safety?
Barry’s getting a free ride on this one, presumably, because his able brother and attorney Dean (left, without a hat but with a tie that needs addressing) is doing the suing, but what, other than boredom, explains this suit? The man lives nowhere near the power plant site so personal use is surely not an issue. Is he just cheesed that Oprah is leaving daytime TV?
Or is the old man coming out of retirement? Does he have his own plan for the site? Whatever his motive, it sure as s**t isn’t concern for hypothetical children.
