Re: “Chewed Out

I am the victim who said it felt like a dream state. He's a weirdo who did fondle women and rape some. he's a cross dresser and to hell with him. I took the witness stand on his queer ass and gave an interview to the news. It is what it is. The judge was retiring that afternoon and didn't want one of the good ole boys to go down. This was a Man versus Woman situation and the judge had a real young fiancé. He was about that Viagra life!!!

Re: “Captain Blight

Section 8 housing on Armour, what can or should we do?

Reference, Steve’s article:

I have made three suggestions, neither of which we will even try. Well, they were ‘tongue in cheek suggestions.
1. Retrain code inspectors in social engineering so they would be able to retrain the lower income people to stop drinking, drugging and trashing their housing.
2. Figure out how to get them to stop committing crime-even pay them not to commit crime. ???
3. Get lawyers to stop getting them off, and this would not work because the jails would not hold them—they even had to let me go from Leeds once to house more serious offenders. I was a code violator.
So what do we do?
This problem isn’t limited to Armour Blvd and Hyde Park. I was visiting a friend in Ruskin Heights and the section 8 problem is serious there. The problem is city wide.

Brainbridge has gotten attention because South Hyde Park has a neighborhood association and can lobby the city. And they lobby. Most areas do not have associations and do not lobby but they have the same problem.
Question is what can we do about the crime problem?
Government intervention in housing has created a situation where people can get nice housing without working for it. They don’t have to accept second rate housing. This, along with code enforcement eliminates second rate housing and raises rental rates, an artificial price setting. And the teaching of a lot of lower income people that they don’t have to work. And then their friends don’t work and a situation—an idle mind is the devils workshop.
I have said that the good social-minded democrats create good programs for the poor and the good republican business man comes along and milks them. Maybe we need a ruling that a landlord could only have so many houses on section 8.
And wasn’t the manager of Fannie Mae making 2 mill a year. And our housing czar $80,000.
Maybe that idea that a landlord could only have a percentage of his units on section 8----Now wouldn’t the owners of Bainbridge scream. But that is a good idea, I hadn’t thought of that before. After all, a farmer can only plant a portion of his land to the subsidized crops.

Re: “Who's found a good Italian-beef sandwich in town?

For an authentic Italian Beef, Mo's Italian Spot at 5932 Prospect Ave
Kansas City, MO. Take the 58th St Exit on 71 HWY and it is right there. The owners are always working. They have Chicago dogs and a combo sandwich, which is a true Chicago thing. You put an Italian sausage in an Italian beef. No where else have I seen that. Food is great.

Re: “The Drop serves lite versions of Lehane, Gandolfini and Hardy

The above poster has once again proved to me that opinions are like belly buttons and another, less metaphysically transcendent body part: everybody has one. I never watched a single minute of The Sopranos, never saw Thomas Hardy in any other film and still feel no inclination to genuflect at the mention of Dennis Lehane. And, I'm not a film critic...amateur or professional.
But, my girlfriend and I talked about this film for two days after we saw it in September. We couldn't wait until The Drop was available on disc. My copy arrived yesterday afternoon and was in the Blu-ray player last night. Nothing at all was lost in the four months since I experienced The Drop in the theater. I'll be watching it again when my sweetie comes to visit in early March.
My belly button thinks that this is a richly nuanced film with great characters. Like The Station Agent with a severed arm tossed in.

Re: “Parents of child who lost fingers in ferret attack say they're broke

I am not really sure what everyone's talking about ferrets have to work really hard to break the skin. I just got 2 ferrets from someone & they got out the travel cage while I was finishing up the main one. I went to pick up the second one & I let him come to me playfully & he rolled over seems friendly. I slowly & genitally lifted him then bam in a blink of the eye he latched onto my wrist repositioned latched again & held on. I scruff-ed him after I realized he had no intentions of letting go & we heard him pop his teeth though the bottom of my skin to the meat. My husband had to pry him off & well now I dont feel very confident about them. I read everyone saying they dont bite & I got 5 holes in my wrist trying to google some info to see what to expect and do.
