The bullshit will thicken and get even worse now that Lyin' Sly's rode off into the sunset. A downhill slope is all that's needed to keep the momentum after the wheels have fallen off the wagon.

His family has been there since 1905. Who better to get a perspective of the streetcar along with some history. I know him and family. Lovely people. Stop to shop if you can afford it.

The black guy.
