..if momma ain't happy...
See, I looked at that paper, in almost pristine condition, and assumed it was either a plant, or some old lady had recently died and the kids cleaned her house out and threw her prized mementos away - in the alley.https://www.baltimoresun.com/opinion/editorial/bs-ed-0808-conservatives-clean-west-baltimore-20190806-hmc2gndnhfhodch4yxromipgnq-story.html
Literally right above this paragraph is a picture of an 11-year-old newspaper they pulled from the trash. And just a few paragraphs below their own statement that 170 people came from all over the country to clean up someone else's neighborhood.
It appears "the tired image of our failing urban cores. That the poor people in this dilapidated city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods" is at least partially true here.
Be skeptical, that's fine. Maybe it wasn't 12 tons. Maybe it wasn't 300 people. But that's arguing semantics while ignoring the fact that the old adage is partially true here given this particular neighborhood couldn't be bothered to clean at least one area for at least 11 years.
Unfortunately, according to the Sun's editorial board, this guy only credible if he actually returns to a city and state he doesn't live in to clean it up. That's petty as hell cloaked in veiled attempts at giving him a pat on the back.
