It's the south side of I-70, technically. That makes it "South Side" in the Disgrace's eyes. AHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAAAA!!!

By the way, happy MLK day!

Your moniker says it all.

Anything south of BROAD STREET...

Can be construed as "South."

Broad & High are the markers,not I-70.

Get a GPS.

What once was a very nice nieghborhood not many years ago in relative time, has been destroyed by the rats of society. Maybe in the future they will exterminate themselves from society, wishful thinking.

Agreed, those who know Columbus know that Broad and High is the center of the city's quadrant. Any address south of Broad is considered in the southern portion of the city. I find it interesting that the description of the location of the MURDER is what got "Mike's" panties in a bunch. Hopefully, the young man was dangerous and deserving of his fate and not just another victim of the rampant violence in our city.

It is sad that people judge by a person's address, skin color, or wealth that person. If you do not know a person, how do you judge them, or should you.

So sweet, all the wonderfully destructive unintended consequences to the civil rights acts that MLK fought so hard to insure are raising their ugly heads big-time....Happy MLK day.

Only 4 killings in the first 17 days of the year will give us only 88 killings for the year. But don't give up on the thugs...It is still the dead of winter.

Thanks for the reminder. The best way I know to keep death from knocking at my door is to stay clear from areas where it is more probable that death will be knocking at the door.

It ends when the auto annihilation that is in progress reaches it's natural endpoint.
