WHY WE DON'T HAVE GARBAGE ON OUR STREETS

One of my complaints about Manhattan is that there is garbage on the curb at night. This leads to rats on the sidewalks, and all sort of businesses and their waste fouling the pedestrian way. Not good design. Bad design. The solution is the humble alley.

The Chicago Tribune has put together a tribute to the lowly alley. I don't know if you'll need to register, but it is pretty cool. Of course the Trib, being the right wing rag it is, insists that Haymarket was a "riot." Of course, in more leftist circles it was the Haymarket Massacre, while in rightist circles it was the Haymarket Riot. Needless to say, in school we learned that it was a riot. Anyway, cool tour. Check it out.
