    There are two things that occur around the first of the month.One,is noticing all the blacks moving into Jeanette and surrounding areas by the dozens. Some have U-hauls–many don’t. If you drive around the west side,you can’t help but observe the continued demise. Second thing are the curbs that have furniture piled up from evictions.WIth all the section 8 housing available now though,you don’t see it as much as you used to. Still,this is the time of month it happens. The third thing you see–any time of the month are police flying around with flashers and sometimes sirens–looking for the thugs who do these shootings.Thank you Bliss and Washington. Diversity is a wonderful achievement(only in your liberal minds)..
