Deplorable Litter At The Lyndale Ave. N. Salvation Army...
A neighbor in Hawthorne made some calls to the Salvation Army about the deplorable litter situation at their Lyndale Ave. N. location. When the neighbor didn't get a satisfactory response from the Salvation Army, video got posted to YouTube and then I was told to "put it on the blog."
(I love the way Johnny Northside Dot Com is always referred to as "the blog," as though there is only ONE BLOG)
And yes, I was TOLD not ASKED to "put it on the blog." I notice how there is often an unspoken assumption I will always just go ahead and blog about a neighborhood issue when asked to do so, no matter how much heat I'll end up taking for it, personally.
In this case, possibly HEAT FROM GOD)
But can I say the assumption is INACCURATE? No, actually, I can't.
So here you go, neighbor. Here's the video on "the blog."
Oh, plus the customary editorial comment: the Salvation Army needs to CLEAN UP ITS PROPERTY on Lyndale Ave. N. And, hey, it's not like they don't have many, many low-paid employees who can take care of the litter.
If the liquor store across the street can take care of THEIR property and put all kinds of money into an improved fence, then the Salvation Army can certainly maintain their relatively small patch of lawn.
