-- Heir Apparent to Detroit
Good luck and continued success en route to a city council seat. If ever
this increasingly impoverished city needed the love and assistance of wiser
people who care, such as yourself, it is now.
Just read your most recent piece on "Basics", and I couldn't agree
more that things are truly "bassackwards in Dallas.
What in the hell is wrong with people in this city? Have they been living
in their little fantasy worlds so long that they are utterly clueless on what it
takes to create, build, MAINTAIN and prosper a great city?
I am becoming ever more convinced that people here just don't give a rat's *X*
about anything but themselves and their little piece of turf! Selfish
Dallasites--that's an understatement.
It's always about deal-making here and social standing whether it be in the rich
areas, the poor sections, straight or gay. Balkanized Dallas--Low voter
turnout Dallas. I don't want to pay taxes Dallas. And on it goes.
This city IS turning into Detroit before our very eyes. Nothing works
right here anymore. And for some strange reason that I can't ascertain,
very few individuals here out of the entire population seem to give a damn about
the city as a whole, let alone their own areas.
The city is filthy from one end to the other--and apparently no one cares to
sweat enough to clean up the litter, trash, etc. Turning Dallas around
will a monumental task because we can't offend anyone here in the land of big
business and social superficiality.
This month, Detroit suburban area voters go to the polls to eliminate ALL mass
transit -- indicative of where their cheap-*X* mentality has evolved.
You say, those in power in Dallas have the "let them eat cake"
response as "poor" Marie Antoinette once intoned. I would
suggest its more like "let them eat *#@*! We've got ours here in the
land of the oligarchs--screw em!
||So there, now you have some of
my feelings on this ever-depresssing topic called Dallas.
