What Do Whoopi and Jerry and Kelli Have That We Don't?

Well friends, I haven't checked in here in a while, this being tour season and all. But I've received more than a few phone calls from people asking my opinion on today's article in the New York Times about pre-recorded tours of Central Park by celebrities available on your cell phone. First, I'm four-square behind the Central Park Conservancy and all the great work they've done and continue to do in Central Park. Second, I think this will be OK for licensed guides in New York. As interesting as these cell phone feeds are they can't answer a good follow-up question or paint a broader picture of the park like we can. And if this helps raise the profile of guides then I say, bravo!
