    Did they stop by the Duck Inn earlier?

  • NanSea nosy neighbor!

    Whaaat? I love the Duck Inn! I know you're kidding. But seriously, we've got to get rid of the gangs and drugs in the neighborhood. I hope Thompson removes the graffiti in that area quickly. The fence near the shooting was all gang tagged. I just reported it on his website although I noticed it Thursday morning while walking my dog. The police response was quick. I love our cops. They've always been quick and courteous.
