What happened to our quaint little town? Why my grandparents moved into the area 63 years ago, we didn't even have the local newspaper. 40 years of mismanagement, folks, of voting for people who didn't do anything for your vote or the paycheck you gave em. While we were all off living our lives, raising our families. Gambino mafiosi arrested in town. These guys spending like drunken soldiers on leave in shanghai. Will Timmy Herbst be sporting a new tatoo pretty soon? I remember visiting family friends who were farmers, they'd give me ice cream, hug and kiss us when I was five years old! We've traded Mayberry for Mulberry street
