The capital city is awash in trash
Trenton remains a home for white trash.
Yeah, you know, more comments about race although the city also holds addresses for black trash.
And Latinos? Yep, they have their own trashy problems.
This is your favorite garbagemouthed columnist talking trash about a capitalcity awash in discarded mattresses, televisions, toilets, beer bottles and BS.
And mice? There’s more than three and a person would have to be as blind as the most famous rodent triplets not to notice the physical deterioration of Trenton.
And if Trenton demises in factual filth, then one can believe the mortal soul floats up for grabs in this capital city.
Just step over those dead bodies there and be ready to take cover should another armed resident open fire on unsuspecting victims.
“We have an overwhelming citywide problem with garbage, property management and enforcement and it has to be addressed now,” Councilwoman Phyllis HollyWard, told The Times of
Trenton last Thursday at a press conference in front of her house on Liberty St. “This issue is spreading like a plague and we have to shut it down like the disease that it is.”
Oh, no. Not a disease. Please refrain from identifying being unclean, filthy, dirty or simply nasty as a disease because that reference lets people off the hook.
One can imagine a city landlord being summoned to court seeking mercy for failure to maintain his property.
“Your honor,” says his attorney. “My client has been diagnosed with TDD and should not face charges for the condition of his rental property.”
The judge yields an inquisitive look. “And, what exactly is TDD?,” he inquires.
“Trash Deficit Disorder.” No clemency or threebreaks-you’re-fined strategy should exist about this issue.
Trenton officials should execute a one-warning strategy that enacts the parental heads up of “I’m not going to tell you again.” Period. Several weeks back
The Trentonian bristled against an Ecuadorian festival that trashed Columbus Park.
The criticism attracted expected pushback about an attempt to hurt their celebration.
Chambersburg residents welcome celebration but visitors will never be allowed to use the park and then leave hundreds of plastic beer cups, food and aluminum trays of charcoal all over Columbus Park.
We will not accept such behavior from any ethnic group.
The City of Trenton remains one of the worst homeowners, with houses seemingly inserted into envelopes of weeds higher than property taxes.
The hard-working Trenton residents who keep this city solvent by paying taxes will make an exodus when they exhaust, not from the distant violence but the approaching roaches, weeds and political apathy.
Unlike the white flight of decades past, this next move out will include blacks, Hispanics and all other ethnic groups.
Run for your lives or demand that Trenton residents, renters and landlords be forced to clean up.
A final note acknowledges that city workers removed the toilet seat, mattresses and cleaned the alley area referenced in a previous article.
Of course, Trenton officials should shoulder some blame for this crap ending up on city streets.
Inaction by city officials about this issue contributes to the deterioration of Trenton.
This garbage was in the 400 block of Washington St. between Morris and Emory avenues until city officials recently cleaned it up.
