If the public doggy bag dispensers is empty that's because I stoled all the bags and gave the bags as presents to my freinds I am always doing nice little things like that.

Was on the bus this morning to West Asheville -- and went through the cheery Pisgah View Apartments. God, what a sadass dump.

Anyway, there was a black woman who was yelling to anyone who would listen that her qualification for food stamps now have to be done monthly.

Then I got back on my bus, and a woman got on and *gasp* she smelled of cigarette smoke so bad that I can *still* smell it. She was ranting to another woman whose hat was on sideways about having to show up to court.

Really, people. Even though I really do believe in giving a chance for the lower ranks of society, COME ON.

Is that why it's the most sought after neighborhood intown
these days? Everybody I meet wants West Avl and it's still affordable. Carrier Park is part of the reason, then there's River Arts, several new restaurants, quick access to downtown, the new brewery soon...many reasons for the resurgence, but a long way to go to get some of those junky properties outta there. Still lots of
poor locals who refuse to roll with the cleanup...they will be replaced in time.

They say that on Kenilworth Knoll you are a walking graffiti, a sort of a strolling eyesore.

Where are you from? You're not from here. Quite an amusing wack, though.

It's a crime ridden slum with some cheap houses. If you don't mind getting shot at, having your house broken into, have gangs and drug deals all around you and a bunch of thugs along with that, pool halls where stabbings kill several at a time and a general aura of redneck hippies everywhere, it's all yours. The place is a stinkin dump.

keeps the place interesting like Chicago...makes people work harder to improve the community, which is where most all the new construction is right now, because it IS affordable, but a new 3/2.5
over 1500 sf will cost over $250K...you can find small new homes for
about $200K if you want small. Rents have skyrocketed, but so have taxes!

Not so fast. For them what is in the politically correct political clicks, Parkway Forest has nice shrewd homes for $105,000. Check out this hunderd thousand dollar home at 62 Wagon Rd. 3 bedrooms, 1200 sq. ft., attached garage with new automatic garage door opener, big third of an acre lot, nice big deck. The minute I saw this I knew it was easy enough for a high school student to understand it. A few months later, an end-run around the building code (codes are made to be broken!), installing new kitchen, new plumbing, wiring, walls, ceilings, carpet, and a new bathroom -- all without the pesky botheration of the building code. And the beauty of it is a $200,000 home and I pay property taxes like I didn't rebuild it from the inside out. The secret is in doing all that covert restoration work inside all confidential like, where nobody can see it thataway you can cheat both the city and the county and laugh all the way to the bank. It's so easy even a high school student can understand it!

Taxes may be high in West Asheville. I lived with the elite on Brucemont Circle, but I wised up with the help of my amoral shack-up Marty who is slick about those end-runs around the building codes and property tax laws too. The secret is in quietly sneakily slipping over to East Asheville and Parkway Forest. I may be the village idiot of Greenwood, SC, but here in Asheville I'm dumb like a fox. If the assessor gets after you stick her a few benjamins under the table. Take it from me: it's so simple even a high school student can understand it!

Yes, bribery is a relatively simple concept.
