Who knew I had so much power with a camera and laptop that I can crush an economy. I can now take over the world.What is really amazing is that I have been able to get the mileage out of this Times Ledger article which I almost missed the potshot.
Excerpt from Times Ledger recent article, Vacant Jamaica storefronts turned into art galleries, included this potshot at Clean Up Jamaica Queens and some local activist like Pamela Hazel and Amy Anderson who have been calling out powers that be for doing nothing about major quality of life issues.
Despite occasional grumblings by some locals about the state of things in their neck of the woods, the Jameco Exchange folks have taken a positive attitude, drawing inspiration from the retail vernacular of their two-story storefront and the cobblestone pedestrian mall in which it is situated, as well as the social culture of Jamaica Avenue and the histories of the community.
Community activists should be applauded for all their hard work and yes, Jamaica does have tough issues that must be dealt with and resolved. But don’t take your frustrations out on writers who are just trying to do their jobs!
Are you trying to malign and BULLY people by demanding that they write in a way that fits YOUR AGENDA?? Hmmm…? Not a wise thing to do.,,
Why not put your energies to better use and stop the BS already. All you’re doing is turning people off. Your rants are probably hurting struggling businesses, stores and eateries in the area. Is that what you want?
