Clean­ing up Tren­ton

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SUNDAY SELECT -

“Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle in the Fri­day, Sept. 16 pa­per on page 10 on Tren­ton Mayor Jack­son. Ap­par­ently, the mayor is not a pro­po­nent of ef­fec­tive clean ups ei­ther. Just wanted to throw that out there. Ap­par­ently, the same thing goes for Mr. Parker. Mr. Parker, maybe you should go out there and start some­thing. Maybe get some of the neigh­bor­hood peo­ple to­gether and ac­tu­ally show us a lit­tle of the cleanup him­self then put it in the pa­per.”

This Back Talk en­try changed my en­tire day as the con­trib­u­tor set my soul on fire.

So, here’s the sce­nario. I’m go­ing to crap my pants, not just to­day but for to­mor­row and the next day. The crap­ping will con­tinue un­til some­body, a neigh­bor or city of­fi­cial smells or sees my crap.

Neigh­bor­hood res­i­dents and city of­fi­cials or­ga­nize to visit my house and clean up my crap. Uh, you missed a spot there. Thanks for clean­ing me up with such pur­pose, de­ter­mi­na­tion and ded­i­ca­tion. See you next time the crap flows.

The Back Talk con­trib­u­tor highlights the rea­son this city, county and coun­try heads off to hell in a Gucci purse. No ex­pec­ta­tions of per­sonal re­spon­si­bil­ity ex­ist any longer as goody two-step­pers bend over back­wards to help those poor un­for­tu­nate souls who have lost their way and have no un­der­stand­ing about how to work a broom, rake or mop.

Clean up af­ter other peo­ple? Not hap­pen­ing. I did that years ago then de­cided that in the best in­ter­est of my time on Earth to keep clean my side­walk, stoop, butt, house and gar­den then head off to play golf, lay on the beach, see grand­child
