I see that once again Haddon Road is collapsing into various sinkholes.
The City has been uselessly screwing around with this street for years. They dig it to install utilities, then re-dig it over and over again to fix them. They apparently do all of this very badly indeed.
Two photos for your viewing pleasure.
One, a sinkhole right next to a grate in the massive fairly new storm sewer under Haddon. That sewer clearly leaks, has water infiltrating, which carries in material, which causes collapse and sinkhole. Everybody not utterly stupid knows that, but when the signs of sinkhole first appeared the City slapped a bit of asphalt on and ignored the underlying problem. The thing is probably 4 feet square and 4 feet deep; dangerous as hell
Two, almost right across the street, a big sunken area with one patch, and Jesus save us, another patch on top. Two loads of civil servant dunderheads still ignoring the problem.
Is the real problem the bottomless incompetence of City staff, or their bottomless featherbedding, screwing up repairs so they can come back over and over again?
I see that there are still hardly any bus stop pullouts, even when there is room for one, and even when roads are rebuilt. Nor are bus stops apparently located with any thought to the convenience of drivers. They’d be in the middle of major intersections if CTS thought they could get away with it.
Do you think this is intentional because the city hall socialists hate cars, love mass transit run by unions and will do anything possible to decrease the utility of the private auto forcing us onto buses? Is there any minor unpleasantness they won’t use to achieve their ends?
What is the true saving from the newly installed LED so called Energy-efficient street lighting? Net of capital costs of the install, real cost, not airy fairy governmental lying accounting.
I’m guessing there is no net saving but rather a huge loss.
The Genius of Rona has decreed that Rona shall carry large bolt pins for 14″ to 18″ hinge straps, but shall not carry those hinge straps. The bolt pins fit nothing that Rona carries.
Because the consumer can go screw himself?
Because Rona mangers are a bunch of metro-sexual millenniums who wouldn’t know a hawk from a handsaw?
Lowes, you are idiots for buying these idiots, they cannot be fixed, just killed.
Wandering about the net I found a book by Mike Cernovich, “Gorilla Mindset” which is, per Amazon, “the most successful non-fiction book launch of 2015, immediately hitting best-seller lists”.
The CPL does not have it. I think Cernovich might be called a rightist. The CPL is a foul nest of lefties. It carries every creepy leftist idiot book ever published, often multiple copies.
