Maintenance Costs will be what they blame when they try to close all motorized (and later wheeled) access. It's not a new scam, they use it frequently.

That's just wrong! Pie should come as a portion of a circle (or perhaps the entire circle). Who ever saw a rectangular Pie Chart? Cake can be round or square but pie?
