80 Cars Vandalized Downtown

Since Sunday night, about 80 cars have had tires slashed in downtown Jamestown.

I personally know two people who came out to their cars after a rehearsal at The Little Theatre last night to find their tires deflated. At the same time, another group of friends were parked one street over and were not affected at all. Last night's vandalism happened just a small block away from our Police Station.

Leading into the holiday season, when more events are happening in the downtown area, including the annual Holiday Parade that usually draws massive crowds, I imagine there's a good many business owners and others who are worried that people will stay away until the criminals responsible for this spree are caught.

I will admit that I'm worried as well since I will have to park near the area where these incidents have happened every night for the next 6 days.

The best we can do is keep our eyes open for whoever is responsible and hope that JPD catches them before more damage is done.

ADDENDUM: The music aficionados on the AMP started a discussion on this topic. There was hope the culprits had been caught, but not so at this time.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:

[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
