1st Up: Something Really Stinks!
The garbage situation at 2201 Irving Avenue North was blogged about a month and a half ago. The post July 4th celebration looked like a landfill in the alley. Well, here we go again…
I returned home the other evening. A house party at 2201 was in progress. As I walked up to the back door, keys in hand, ready to go inside, I could hear the party goers commenting on my race—typically I’m referred to as “that white boy”—as I entered my home. The music was blasting, but fortunately it seemed that the neighbors weren’t in the mood to receive a noise violation call from MPD that evening.
As I leave my house today, what do I see? Wow, Mount Trashmore is back! Bags with holes litter strewn around, and garbage in the recycling bins. This apocalyptic display of trash may seem reminiscent to some sort of modern art. The problem here, however, is the stench, the flies, the bees, and general nastiness of it all.
Just looking at the pictures you can see recyclables that should be in the bin. It’s another couple days before the garbage truck comes through here. This is going to get really nasty between now and then.
Naturally, 311 was informed right away about this.
Jerk Du Jour: The Drug Dealers
Let’s face it; drugs are at the very center of our societal and urban woes here. The dealers, the users, the enablers, the criminal justice system, and everybody sitting on the sidelines are all players in this calamity.
There is no 1 person to site here, and the problem is so morbid and huge there is no 1 solution to the problem either. For a little escape, I turn to Dave Chappelle. Enjoy!
