18th and vine to start new Christmas tree tradition.....

They have historic buildings that are collapsing down there, they still haven’t paid off the musicians from last years failed jazz fest and suddenly they have more tax payer money to throw away on a tree and celebrations? Who the fuck is driving this train wreck? Wait, what, it’s kolored people, that explains everything.

How many people will be shot at this event?

"...police were called to 31st Street and Broadway Boulevard to help a motorist with a flat tire." What, are the cops now doubling as AAA mechanics? Apparently it never occurred to this motorist to pull off the road into an empty parking lot and change the damn tire.
