I plan to call the county election board tomorrow (if anyone answers)

Is it possible to buy our own collection boxes to place in town. I would like to place one in front of the police station.

What do they cost? I can take up a private collection.

Presently, the nearest box is 5 miles away. Inconvenient for non-drivers.

Spotted Lantern Flies. D.E.P. doesn't answer their phones.

Right now, they are all over the trees. They look like locusts. The base of the tree is a white and black disgusting mush.

She tried several times to call the D.E.P.

Pissing contest, community social board

Two women, going after each other... about 10 comments back and forth.

Susan: “Well, I’m an M.D.”

Wendy: “Yeah, well I’m a lawyer. We eat you for lunch.”

Bank of 'merica F.U.B.A.R.

Customers who woke up this morning and checked their accounts, found they had a "0 balance." B.O.A. attributes it to a computer glitch.

My wife and daughter both got hit with it.

Wife discovered it and called our daughter.

W: "My accounts show no money in them. Zero."

D: (Calmly) "Well that is a problem. We'll call them at 8:30." Meanwhile, she is simultaneously logging on to her account and --- "HOLY SHIT !" -- as it showed she also had a zero balance. Suddenly, it became a BIG problem.

Health vs. B.L.M. What would u do?

Last night. 9:00 p.m.

Our neighborhood is mixed. 60% Black, 10% Latino 30% white. No conflicts. Little intermingling except with immediate neighbors. So back to last night.

On any given night, there are 5 or 10 cars parked on the street. Last night, there were around 30 that were parked in the vicinity of one of the houses. It is either Black owned or with a Black tenant. 5 guys were on the sidewalk, close together, no masks. The house is small. The back yards in our block average 100 sq. ft.

Given the parameters and observed behavior, it is likely the participants were not practicing social D or proper masking.

This affects all of our health: Mine and theirs. Doing nothing, risked the community's health.

I debated notifying the police about the violation of our state's health order. Were these white people, no question in my mind. But our police department is under legal sanctions because of prior interactions with Black residents.

I did nothing. What would you have done?

Edited to add, I am a geriatric white guy... and to add "not" to the 4th., single sentence paragraph.
