blog post by John Hoff
It's on like Donkey Kong. Yesterday I hinted 2719 Lyndale Ave. N. was likely to become this blogger's latest obsession, but I was willing to wait, like, exactly a week to see if there was any progress before I would start beating my drum incessantly. Almost immediately, I was told...
...a cleanup would be taking place THURSDAY, which is...well, that's today, isn't it?
And there was a cleanup. There was, um, PROGRESS. Note this photo taken TODAY at 2:28 PM.
This is what tries to pass for progress in North Minneapolis. Apparently, a half-assed cleaning effort is all our neighborhood and this fine old house is worth from Neighborhood Housing Service Minneapolis. WTF, people, WTF?
Not. Good. Enough.
JNS blog has its ear to the ground to find out if this is all we're getting or if this was just a preliminary effort. My sinking heart strongly suspects I already know the answer.
