I generally don't have much love for muckrakers in my fair city. There's at least one I can get into, simply because Official Dan L Girlfriend (TM) lives in the horrible horrible ward, but for the most part letter-writers and committee-formers annoy me usually because they're yapping about nonsence.
Usually, I hear something like this:
WELL YESTERDAY I TOOK THE TRAIN AND THE TRAIN RAN SLOW. THE TRAIN WAS LIKE 10 MINUTES LATE AND LIKE I WASN'T ABLE TO GET TO NY UNTIL THERE WAS ONLY 30 MINUTES LEFT IN THEIR HALF PRICE MARTINI HOUR. DARN YOU CORRUPT DALEY. I'M CALLING THE ALDERMAN!!
But for the shock value, Peter Zelchenko may have a point
I think we should send Patrick McDonough over to the 43rd to investigate this. In addition to being a water department hero, certified plumber, ace corruption investigator, and having an engineering background - his expertise in these matters are legendary.
Sometimes I really, really can't help myself.
