Butt fired over the wall and sorta apologizes. Just sorta.

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.
