Kudos to Indianapolis' City Services

...for clearing this mess within 24 hours of my call.

I shot this while the pile was still neatly stacked and condensed. Within a day it was blocking half the street and blowing into my yard. These neighbors sandwiched their move-in and their move-out with identical piles. The move-in pile festered in their yard for three months, blowing trash over the entire block...for three months. It was so depressing. So I got on this one fast. I called three different agencies on Monday, and by Tuesday this was entirely gone. Not a scrap of anything. Frankly, I'm stunned. All of my calls, one each to road hazards, mayor's action center, and health department were met by courteous, professional people, and I spent very little time being routed to them.

It's enough to make a person care.

Ahh. Middle America is real after all.

(gcs: you brought laughter to my mouth.)

gcs: Oh, no. I hope I wasn't insensitive. I realize you might have been serious, which is completely understandable, as this is a serious situation. Seriously.

gcs is a real softy, in a good way.
