How Lame Is This?

In an attempt to get rid of crime in a Hartford park the local brain trust came up with the idea of blasting the thieves, murderers, pimps, whores, drug dealers and addicts in the park with classical music. As if these criminals are some sort of cultural vampires who are so vulgar that anything classical burns them like holy water. Here's a tip Chachi: how about enforcing the law? Arrest criminals and make their lives a living hell so that decent law abiding folks can go about their lives in peace. Or is that too confrontational? If so too bad. This isn't A Clockwork Orange and the bompies in the park haven't undergone the Ludovico Method. If it works, great for the park but where do you think these low lifes go? Away to sin no more? I doubt it. They move on to the next park or corner. It is the first responsibility of government is to maintain law and order. Does this plan sound like the authorities in the capital city, of the richest state, in the greatest nation the world has ever known, have abdicated their responsibility? The sounds of Ludwig Van wafting through Barnard Park are your answer.

You are so right about this! How terrible for you that an old lady like me thinks you're in tune with her:)
