I'm a retired state worker. Most of the "M/C" employees I knew were wildly overpaid, and I doubt that has changed substantially.

I never knew only Catholics of Irish descent could join the Hibernians. C'mon,'s 2014. Isn't that a bit out of the old days? Incidentally, my maternal grandparents immigrated to the US from Ireland in the early 20th century, and I'm proud to be 1/2 Irish-American. Irish heritage is one thing to celebrate & preserve, but one's religion is another matter altogether.

safny, I think (sadly) that you're correct. The heck with grant money for this....the city needs to find a way to expedite the process of pursuing deadbeat owners. There's a house around the corner from me that had a major fire FIVE years ago. It is now only inhabited by pigeons (that I know of). It is on a small lot that no one would build on in 2014 if it were to be torn down. Make the owners pay; they collected their rent money for years and now the thing just sits there attracting vermin? What's wrong here?
