Guest Blog: Fred Carroll: Do You Speak "Street?"

  Below is a guest blog from resident Fred Carrol. The essay reflects views and opinions not necessarily shared by the Insider staff, and is published as a courtesy to readers. "Dr." Fred Carrol has shared his thoughts with us many times before via guest blog- his last can be read here: 
"Thoughts on Homelessness"
Of Niggers And Fagots And Bitches And Whores....Do You Speak "Street?"

Everyone knows the term Quality Of Life and it is clearly a self explanatory phrase, as in when you hear "Quality of Life code violation enforcement" you think of Rudy what's his name, and New York City being saved, salvaged, resurrected as it was, from the criminality which had reached critical mass by the simplest, most obvious tactic in the world......go after little things, and you solve big problems when all is said and done. And while I don't wish to compare Middletown to New York, I suggest that the principle demonstrated by the "New York Experiment" is too valuable to ever ignore. Society at large of course cannot legislate stupidity or hostility out of the human heart, but since "From the heart speaketh the mouth", I sure would like to see enforcement of any and all codes pertaining to volume, content, context and correctness with regard to "hate speech". If liquored up loquacious loiterers got ticketed for their loud public vulgarity, eventually a "change of heart" might even occur in their restless, heaving breast........and let's get those Spittoons on the ground!
