      You lost your luster of being funny seeing as that was how long ago and you comment on everything about Frackville, which has nothing to do with Frackville. If the story was in Frackville, then maybe, but it’s not.

        It really is a shame for the amount of historical significance that area has had in shaping our country and the rest of the world. Greedy people ruin peaceful lifestyles built on hard work and ethics. Then you get jokes about long grey socks and street roamers instead of the solutions that could save your own communities from becoming blighted. We need to be able to hold those that are responsible accountable. Banks and politicians are the bane of community. Schuylkill County is the Detroit of Pennsylvania without question. How would you fix it before it knocks on your chamber door? I wonder.

        Maybe more unpaid vocal auditors from the responsible actors in communities that have been victimized before your town turns into Shendo?

Use the actions of people that we were never associated with to put 98.2% of the population back 30 years? For what?
