*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Blustery

A significant segment of New York is a deteriorating jungle where civilization has ceased to exist, and so is the core of many of our larger cities …. City neighborhoods have moved toward one-race groupings—inbred, hostile ghettos with a garrison mentality toward the rest of the world. We have lost most of the gains we have made in social relations and this holds the seeds of race war.
[Mormon financial writer Howard Ruff, quoted in Harper’s]

 [The 2011 Minneapolis Tweed Ride stops on the Stone Arch Bridge for a round of "Pass the Bottle."]

My favorite case was when they asked random people how to improve the Egyptian economy. You can imagine how boring it would be in the USA Today if they asked random Americans how to improve the American economy. But in Egypt, one gem of a respondent said: “There is no way to fix it. The economy is doomed. God help us all.”

Center City Philly has about 70,000 residents (very large for a US downtown), while the city has 1.5 million, so 5% is conservative, for most cities.
