"...In the year before it closed, Columbus police had been called there at least 53 times, mostly because of fights."

The area's residents have ZERO ability to create or sustain the social capital which modern civilization requires. And don't forget, these are obama.

Lots of quotes from the Area Commission, the Development Corp. and various community leaders.

Plenty of talking but not much doing.

Go away, Linden, you are just sad, old news.

You are failure.

Really?

Promise?

It seems all they do is talk about how great it was, how it sucks now and the inevitable "somebody ought to do something". The "somebody ought to do something" hinges on somebody other than those quoted footing the bill. Sorry, but if the South Linden community won't support it why expect the taxpayer to fund improvements to it?

The only capital investment in the ghetto that seems to have merit is Buster Douglas Boxing in Windsor Terrance Projects / Ghetto. You almost never hear about it due to location, location, location but typically these sort of investments are highly non-profitable b/c of the clientele they serve.

Nothing says yummy like "restaurant in Linden".

They can blame their Arab Messiah for the fact that nobody can afford McDonalds anymore.
