Frank Girardot is the Metro Editor for the San Gabriel Valley News. Frank also writes the Crime Scene Blog. He made a flippant analogy of the flailing economy and a cigarette butt tossed over a wall in an oped piece a few days ago. Readers ripped him a new one on his blog post “Tossing butts in the gutter.” as well as letters to the editor.
Late yesterday he did a video tour of the other side of the wall in a post “Checking butts in the gutter.” Picked up a butt that could have been his. He also found a lot of business cards for a “relaxation specialist” which we all know would have had better luck advertising her “tension release” services on Craig’s List. Not quite an apology but an interesting audit of a gutter.
The pic is a screen shot but does link to the video itself. Enjoy, it made me chuckle over my morning coffee.
