Cool trip!! 8)

My news feed showcased this 16yo who died of the ‘Rona recently, :( Headline said “perfectly healthy” I swear the poor thing must have been 280+!! “Perfectly healthy” :roll:

Was listening to my favorite radio station recently, WEES, OCMB and noticed this lyric...

A year has come and gone since we heard the news 'bout Billy Joe
And brother married Becky Thompson; they bought a store in Tupelo
There was a virus going 'round; papa caught it, and he died last spring
And now mama doesn't seem to want to do much of anything
And me, I spend a lot of time pickin' flowers up on Choctaw Ridge
And drop them into the muddy water off the Tallahatchie Bridge

:tuba:

Some people still don’t get it...

Even if “the man” is not a neither white, nor a man, they are still “the man!!”

Just you wait until they move the city limits out beyond where you are so they can collect taxes on yo property.

I lived in a little enclave of the county here that the city kept trying to annex. Very rich car dealership owner kept blocking it. I'm still in the county and they haven't tried too hard so far but I'm sure it's coming. My only real objection is that the really good sheriff's department would be replaced by the really bad city police department.

Wasn't always the case.

In the early 20th century, cities like Baltimore had much better public works (water/sewer service, sanitation, streets etc), fire protection, police protection, schools etc. than the surrounding counties. So annexation was a good thing then.

But now, many cities are hotbeds of malfeasance and corruption. Baltimore has had two of its last four mayors thrown out of office on corruption charges- and refuses to change the law so these convicts can't run again...............

Many have the opportunity to get the hell out and have.

There are still those left behind that can’t leave. I hope they wake up for realz.

But why should this time be different?

I pray to be proved wrong. I do...
