the noble sanitation worker: lionel from pix 11

I think this is a great editorial. Sanitation workers don’t deserve to be Bloomberg’s scape-goat. Here’s an excerpt: “The most important person on the government payroll today bar none is the sanitation worker. He and she are the barrier to disease, epidemics, and incalculable discomfort.” Although the fact that their ploughs have come down my street 12 f-n’ times scraaaaping across the same 2-3 inches of snow ( initially just starting new potholes) does make me wonder if this ain’t a little payback, ie; you want service?, here’s some service (insert Italian fuck-you arm gesture here). Anyway, Lionel’s a manic oddball and I like that.
