Save the Flowers, Save the World

Normally the only thing that stops a lacrosse game from happening is a totally sweet Coldplay concert, but in Pittsburgh, Franklin Park, a veritable hot spot for white dudes with sticks something else is gumming up the works. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources informed the manager of the park that a rare blue buttercup flower may be growing in the area of the field.

There is no evidence the plant is growing anywhere on or near the land, said borough Manager Ambrose Rocca. However, the borough will probably have to hire a botanist to confirm the flower, which is listed as “critically imperiled” in Pennsylvania, is nowhere to be found.

No evidence, no flowers found, but they are going to search for it and delay building the field for at least a year. That’s some fine planning there.
