If someone had fixed the potholes in AZ I wouldn't be sitting here with broken ribs right now.

Check out the name on that new mayor..


It gets better:

quote:

Chokwe Lumumba was born August 2, 1947 in westside of Detroit, Michigan as Edwin Finley Taliaferro, a name he refers to as his 'slave name'. Lumumba was the second child of eight born to Lucien and Priscilla Taliaferro.[1] He has been prominent in the reparations and other self-determination movements of persons of African descent and was elected Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi on June 4, 2013.

I was skateboarding and looked back to talk to a friend and WHAM I hit a huge pothole...it was like 8 inches deep. I went flying and didn't have time to catch myself. Broke 2 ribs and tore the cartilage that hold my ribs to my sternum. Ouch.

2002 is the model of the car, not the year. :)

Someone who knows to use "Bimmer" when referencing a BMW car should recognize the original European sports sedan.

As well they should, this guy is less a super hero and more a terrorist. Fixing shite however he sees fit, disregarding law and order? This is what you people celebrate? We have government so that THEY can decide what needs to be fixed, not just any loose cannon with a tool belt. He should be hanged publicly in my humble opinion.

Chane is a well known shop owner in Fondren and according to my husband, one of the most hard working sonofabitches you'll ever meet. Chane is one of those people that is committed to turning Jackson around, but it sounds like he may be reaching the end of his rope. I hope he doesn't get in trouble over this.

So if the city just has asphalt sitting around, why don't they fix the holes themselves?

re: Man uses city asphalt to fix 100+ pot holes


I did that on my neighborhood street, except I bought the cold patch at Lowe's, myself.

There were 4 ft x 10 ft sections of the street where the asphalt was reduced to little more than agate. I and several other neighbors spent about a year calling, writing, and talking directly with/to the city and county (they were squabbling about who was responsible for the road) about fixing the road, to no avail. Finally, I figured the price of keeping my wife's car in alignment and the tires balanced was more than the coast to fix the holes, so I dropped about $100 on the supplies, got a truckload of gravel from my father-in-law to fill the holes, then topped them off with cold patch.

A couple of weeks later, the county repaved the entire road... Just like the leaders in Jackson, the local poobahs don't like anyone making them look like a possum's pecker. Pretty sure FEMA paid for it (the neighborhood was hit by the April 27, 2011 tornadoes), so thank you US taxpayers and Chinese creditors!
