Yes, I know some of the people that live down there, lets see there's the Hanleys for one, and the description of the people that the second poster on here gave describe them to the fullest. That part of down is a welfare breeding ground, they breed welfare babies who grow up and have welfare babies, instead of going to school they teach their kids how to beat the system, how to get what they can for free, yea some of the men work, but 90% have old ladys at home with 3 or 4 kids that the welfare system are supporting cause the momma didn't put the daddy on the birth certificate. And as far as beating someones ass down, yea thats about right, they haven't grown up down there yet, they think they can just beat everyone up. I use to hang out when I was young and stupid with one of the married in Hanleys, Tammy Slone and her sister Peggy Slone, yea they were suppose to be these big bad ass girls back in the day, well little miss tammy learned real quick for every bad ass theres one just a little more bad than her. But when you do whip one of thems ass watch out cause then the whole family will come after you with 3 or 4 on 1, then they brag about beating your ass, anyway long and short a very pathetic bunch of people down there. no place at all to be.

Sounds like that would be a good spot to put the new arena with several VERY large parking lots.

It is a welfare breeding ground. You forgot that if the men do work it is usually under the table because they wouldn't be able to get their disability checks any other way! LOL

That is a great idea! We could send one street down to west 5th and let then live in Coolavin Apartments. Then you could send the other over to Winburn.

From the way you type... It is pretty clear that you are missing some teeth. I think all the dentists left Irish Town in the early 20th Century, so that explains why your great-grandparents had dental issues... But it leaves me wondering why you have lost your teeth. It also leads me to wonder if you are wearing Sketcher's and driving a PT Cruiser?
