    The Wyoming valley has spoken. (Below) My words of truth have caused a bitter response from it’s people. Mission accomplished. Now after recognizing their flaws I have introduced to them, they will take to their streets and take back their urban wasteland.

    You’re right, he would be cuter with a few more pounds on him. I’d like to meet your “fella” down my club someday.

  • Urban wasteland

    From Carbondale to Nanticoke is a two county area of society that has broken down to the point of no return. A third world cesspool if you will. How do these people wake up everyday without putting the muzzle of a firearm to their temple and squeezing the trigger? A tough breed of humans they must be. Urban warriors with the loss of fear and the desire to submerge their souls into the lifestyle of endless pity. You, my Lackawanna and Luzerne county friends are a breed of undesirable filth.

      I’m sure you are very active in the community are are doing everything possible to promote change! Nah, you are probably a lazy slob that, laying on the couch all day covered in dorito crumbs. I mean, it’s so much easier to type a few line of rhetoric, than it is to actually help promote change for the better. Move, do something to help or shut up.

        Ain’t or no- My community is in no need of improvement. My neighbors and I have always been proactive and despair has never found our town. Nor will it ever. I’m doing my job for my community. And you?
