...nor did we try to, however:
In ONE day, the city removed three huge trees that we see from our yard and installed a stoplight at the corner. Apparently a few kids have gotten hit by cars, or almost hit by cars in the last few years. Not to sound like a curmudgeon or anything, but somehow kids have managed to make it across this street for decades without incident, and now it is a problem? I'm gonna wager it has something to do with kids and their i-pods. or that darn texting.
End of the curmudgeon report.
