Dear PoP – New Feature Idea – Horses Ass Award


“Dear PoP,

The post about the dead tree at the police station got me thinking… how about you have a once-a-week post about something in one of the neighborhoods that needs to be fixed/repaired?

The San Francisco Chronicle has a similar feature called “Chronicle Watch”… They describe the problem, and then report back 15-30 days later on the status… Here is a link – click on a few to get the idea:

I think this is a great idea. I propose we call it the Horses Ass Award. I’ll make the first nomination. I’m very disappointed in the progress at 3145 Mt. Pleasant Street which was gutted by fire.
