Stolen Yard Ornaments

Posted on Sat, Sep 28, 2013 at 8:24 AM



I live just off of Division and just north of Indiana. I have a collection
of yard ornaments with sentimental value. There was this great pig in my
front yard. Our joke was that he looked like a leper pig. He was a member
of the family. I write in past tense because he's gone. I'm not angry, I'm
sad. I suppose my gnomes and my donkey and cart are next. Should I bring
them in? I don't know. I hope you enjoy our pig. He is missed.

Thief

Posted on Sat, Sep 28, 2013 at 8:24 AM



To the teenager who stole the laptop from my friends wheelchair approx 3-4
weeks ago...WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? He used that laptop to communicate, etc
( much like Steven Hawking). He has cerebral palsy and was in the parking
lot of his apartment and was totally defenseless, I am not one to wish
negative things on others BUT in your case I HOPE with all my heart you (or
a family member) get a taste of what you dished out....you may never see
this but hopefully the universe will!

Fellow Neighbor

Posted on Sat, Sep 28, 2013 at 8:24 AM



To the neighbor who left my husband and I a long "rude" note regarding how
loud we are when we have sex. We live in an apartment complex, you hear
things from time to time. You state it's all night and morning. I know for
a fact it can't be all night and all morning. I also know you probably
can't hear EVERYTHING like you claim, unless you put your ear up to the
wall to listen, which is creepy. Thanks for the advice on buying a new bed
since ours is so "loud", but we are poor college kids. We live in an
apartment, noise happens. And sex with my husband is going to happen, so
get over it or move.

Ex-Wife

Posted on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 8:24 AM



I understand bitterness and pain and hurt, most of us who have ever loved
understand. But where all respect or admiration that was once thought of
you, is now a path we all walk on! You have belittled, taken advantage of,
and selfishly disrespected single mothers everywhere. Not only did your
ex-husband (and myself as well) pay full child support (enough to pay all
the bills including the house mortgage so the kids could grow up in the
house they've always known!) to you, you instead put all the money away
including your own income and with our hard earned money you took
extravagant trips and vacations (only one with the kids btw) and otherwise
used the money meant for the children for your own selfish needs and
feelings. What you spent on medical for them you only did out of pure
vindictiveness in hopes of trying to financially f#@k us again! Do you
realize that all the single mothers out there who would be ecstatic to have
an ex that paid even a quarter of what we did! And how cooperative we
were?! To think that I defended you and your actions not only to your ex
but to your kids as well when they were upset at you?! I truly feel like an
absolute dumba$$ for doing it now and any respect I had (and I had a lot
for you!) is now gone like a puff of smoke! You're the one that has to live
with yourself and fortunately we don't so the favor is on our side, but I
deeply apologize to all the single moms out there struggling with dead beat
dads and exes because women like the one I am writing too has made it now
harder for you and also for the amazing dads out there who take care of
their kids financially and lawfully as well as with their hearts! You
cannot hurt us anymore and now all we feel for you is sad pity that you
refuse to move on and let bitterness go, for that I am truly sorry.

To Losing A Friend

Posted on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 8:24 AM



All of us in this community and the world lost a good friend last week. I'm
not going to go into how he died or why, but I can tell you that he was a
huge part of being a catalyst for Spokane's Music/Entertainment/Art and
community. The last time I saw him was at Elkfest 2013 shining bright in
the midafternoon sun on stage with his talented crew, The Flying Spiders.
Since I heard the news of his apparent suicide I can't stop listening to
his and his bands latest album, "Sexy Intelligent EP: Villaging Trilogy".
It's a solid album and is funky and well crafted by his creative cast. It
really hit hard to try to remind us all in our great city to always take
time to say "hi" or spend a minute with someone in our tight knit art and
music community. I myself struggle with depression and anxiety and at times
I think we forget how fragile and emotional creative minds are. As I write
this on the anniversary of 9/11, I want to remind all of us artist,
musicians, painters and writers that you all have so much courage and light
that you bring to the world and to never quit or get discouraged. Sometimes
maybe we need to realize why we all do what we do and to not chase the
sometimes elusive fame/fortune/respect theories and to do it to "inspire,
to free your soul, to create beauty, to make people smile, and to make true
human connections." These being the only things that really matter in this
f@#*ed up world. So next time you see a lonely soul playing his saxaphone
downtown, or a painter painting under a railroad bridge or some sweat
soaked guitarist that just melted everyone's face at some dive bar,
say "What's up?" and "thank you" in this often times "thankless" vocation.
God Rest Your Soul Som - Much love!

Jeers On Me!

Posted on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 8:24 AM



to the driver of a black motorcycle Wedneday, September 11th at LC right
after school. Me: red sports car picking up my kid. I let my technology
distract me and almost hurt you. No excuses or explanations, completely my
bad. I even used to ride. I know better. My apologies. My kid suggested a
Jeer for your language, but as a former motorcycle rider, I totally get it.
All the jeers on me and my sincerest apologies. I truly do hope you see
this.

Tailgating

Posted on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 8:24 AM



To the white male in his 20's driving on I-90 on Sunday, September 8th,
approx 1:10 pm, right before crossing into WA from ID driving a white van
with a rooftop cargo container. I, a white female in her 30's with a child
and a small dog in my green Ford Explorer. I was in the left lane and could
not get over, yet you thought you would ride my tail following about a foot
behind me. When I could get over and put my signal on and started to get
over, you cut me off, causing me to swerve back into the left lane. If that
wasn't enough, after I was so upset I gave you the bird, you tried to hit
my car with yours and then drive me off the road. Had it not been for my
cat-like reflexes, my family and I could have been dead right now. In
trying to save our lives I missed getting your license plate and so I and
followed you off the exit, where you illegally changed lanes and fled from
me. I did file a police report and, unfortunately for you, I'm a PI. I will
hunt you down. I got most of your license plate digits, and you will be
punished for this. Any witnesses please come forward if you have helpful
information. Thanks.

RE: Bus Riders

Posted on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 8:24 AM



To the person sending in the comment/Jeers regarding bus riders. Hold the
Milk Truck, I often ride the bus and it is unclassy of you and unfair of
you to put all bus riders in a group and assume things.Have you ever riden
a bus? Do you know how difficult it is to walk across a road or in this
case a highway with groceries? Maybe that person has a large family to
support and has but no choice to buy "all that stuff without thinking about
it". Ever think of that? Also, just because one rides a bus by no means
makes them dirty or grimey. Nor will a bus rider using a cart leave said
cart any more or less grimey than anyone else, such a statement out of your
mouth just shows how undereducated you are. Get on a bus, buy some
groceries and you try getting them home, it is not easy! And then tell us
how it is, I pray that those judgements will be replaced by compassion.

Really!?

Posted on Sat, Sep 21, 2013 at 8:24 AM



Here is something to ponder to all those who jeer and complain. Are we
really that unfortunate as a society to instead of saying something to that
person directly about one's actions, we decide to sit here and hide behind
a keyboard, or pen and paper as a resolution? Did we not come from other
countries who were enslaving us from our freedom where we were silenced by
the actions we made, and as a choice, we the people, set aside our own
animosities we had against each other, and worked together to try and be
equal? Can we not learn to grow and move past one's trespasses, and if it
still bothers us confront them directly, instead of taking the cowardly way
out? Can we not learn to pick and choose our own battles wisely, and
maturely? I'll admit, I am not perfect, nor do I pretend to be, but to hold
onto these grudges seems wasteful, and hurtful to the one's who are
actually writing them.
