A couple of weeks back I posted about an unfortunate confrontation involving former President Bill Clinton and a homeowner, Mrs. Doris Frazier of Gas City, Indiana. Imagine my surprise this morning when I checked my email and found a message from one of the people mentioned in that post. It was a real surprise.

You may be tempted to dismiss my claim as more of the usual Sneed bullsh*t, but allow me to assure you that its true. And this communication came without a cease and desist order and threat of lawsuit. Sweet.

In other news, the geniuses who run our city have a penchant for boneheadedness. They are in the process of seal coating the streets in our neighborhood. Seal coating involves putting some type of oil-based liquid and then dumping gravel on top of the oily stuff. Eventually, they run a large roller over the street and use a sweeper to pick up some of the excess gravel.

My buddy, Some Guy Named Bob, tells me that this is the first street maintenance that our neighborhood has had in the thirty years that he has lived in the area. Our streets were in bad shape.

But they don't get all the oil-covered little stones with the street sweeper. In fact, they don't get most of them. Most of them wind up beating the beejeezus out of the bottom of passing cars. Or in my case, clogging up my brakes. I had to take the Civic to the brake shop twice to get the sticky stones cleaned out of my brakes. The brake shop guy told me that a lot of people from the neighborhood had been in for the same reason as me.

Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

The City Fathers/Mothers were simply making sure, that when you received your Stimulus check from DC, that you helped stimulate your local Economy! ; )

No more, no less.

Sue! Something similar happened to my sister when they paved the main drag in her town, and the city had to pay for all the damage. Ack!

I think Coffee is definitely on to something there.
