    This is a victim-blaming rationalization to let litterbugs off the hook.

    If you litter, you are responsible. It’s not magically society’s fault.

    It’s not about the litter bugs, it’s about people who live where the litter bugs are throwing trash. They won’t pick up other people’s trash when it is tossed in front of their home if the rest of the block already looks crappy.

    Different mindset I guess, we have neighbors who will throw a party and the front yard is full of trash. I’d be embarrassed to have someone over with the yard full of trash but they don’t seem to mind. They recently threw an old TV out front, well I guess they never called for a bulk pick up because it sat there for weeks. This past weekend I pulled out their hopper and threw the TV in there because I got tired of looking at it.

    The sad part is the fuck you they’re throwing out the car windows is mostly fucking themselves and they’re too painfully stupid to realize it.

    I don’t see how turning one’s entire neighborhood into a trash bin could appeal to anyone, but it does to some. It takes almost no effort to avoid littering in many cases. It’s apathy and a deviant attitude causing it.
    Is this a racial or cultural thing? Do areas like West Franklin or areas along S. Parsons also have this kind of litter problem? I haven’t looked too closely but haven’t noticed that they do.

    I wasn’t going to comment, didn’t want this to turn into a thread about litter but yeah I think it’s cultural. I grew up on the south side and even though we were poor I never seen littler like I see now. Ever since moving to the east side the amount of litter we see daily is sickening. I’m talking entire bags of trash thrown out of a car door, right in the middle of the street. It’s crazy. I take a pick-stick with me while walking the dog and pick up trash on our route and when we make our way thru the park the little thugs give me the stink eye like they’re mad at me for messing up their work. I just don’t understand how looking out door and seeing trash could appeal to anyone.

    A couple come to mind…

    Barcelona and their Vieiras
    pan seared sea scallops; bacon, mushrooms, baby lima beans,
    dates, chile flakes, cream

    Lindey’s and anything from their seafood selection.

    G. Michaels I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad meal there. We went recently and I was reminded why their shrimp & grits are legendary.

    I guess I was still naïve enough to think that if you were innocent of a crime and had your day in court that the truth would prevail.

    Finished it up over the break, and I agree it was riveting.

    Really rocked my faith in our judicial system.

    Sorry it was last year in Louisville. We stopped at a small store that also had a bar and just happened to be owned by the president of the Louisville Bourbon Society. So he knew a thing or two about it. It’s a cool little shop to stop into if you’re down that way. It’s on Market Street downtown.

    Fun place and you’ll get an education, the owner is eager to talk about bourbon and share his knowledge.

    It’s all about the ice and the right amount and the timing.
    We done a neat little experiment where we sampled 3 different bourbons. First flight was neat (no ice); the bourbon was just what you would expect, pretty hot and strong flavors of cinnamon. Second round we used just a chip of ice and let it start to melt just a bit, this time the bourbon was not as hot and we noticed some different flavors could be that it was just a little cooler, but the caramel and vanilla flavors were more pronounced. Third flight we added another piece of ice, this one a bit larger and we let it sit a wee longer. This round the bourbon took on a more boozy taste, you could really taste the alcohol.
    His point was that the right amount of ice at the right time can improve the experience.

    Hey Alex, thanks for asking!
    J, I’d love to keep her but my girl is just not warming up to her. She’s 5 and has been the only dog all her life.

    Nancy is right, this dog is all set, house broken, knows “shhhh…” already, and is soaking up commands like a sponge, she’s as plug & play as they get :)

    And she really is full of so much vigor, I was telling my wife that she’s like having a puppy without all the work.

    Thanks duncan :)

    Hey Alex, she really is an awesome dog. I would keep her myself but we have a 5 year old female Rottie that is very jealous and territorial being the only child all her life; I’m afraid she will hurt the pup.

    Let me know if you are interested in meeting her. I’d be willing bring her over and let you take her for a “test run” and if it does not work out would be willing to take her back, I just want her end up in a good home. I’m off the rest of the week so any time works for me, let me know.

    She’s going to make someone a great dog! I would LOVE for it to be you!
