Feel better, Dan. You are one wonderfully cool dude.
First, I agree that Mr. Hughes should be rehired. The punishment he should receive at the hands of the criminal justice system should be more than adequate for RTA, and if not, a retraining class or something would serve.
Second, it is time to start discussing having transit cops on buses. When a driver is attacked, everyone on the bus is in danger, as well as everyone in a car or on foot near that bus. I know this will be expensive, but I don't care -- maybe they can hire some of the garbagemen I dearly loved who lost their jobs after these damned microchipped trash cans were installed.
This cannot be allowed to continue.
This well-written, frank and tragic story is a capsule of the problems Cleveland faces. The ghettos cannot be ignored -- the rest of us cannot live in peace as long as some people here are condemned to a life of extreme poverty.
Thank God none of my relatives causes me the embarrassment that Josh Mandel causes his.
Eggsellent idea, AdamHall, but how would it be implemented?
You guys at Scene clearly get some excellent pharmaceuticals. Canca hook a lady up?
"Nothing I can do about it"? How's about surrendering your pension and all your other assets to the citizens you stole them from, Frank?
This story would cheer me up far more if he weren't free for another 5 or 6 weeks. WHY is there so much lag time in dragging Frankie the Fiend off to prison?
