Western New York has the highest rate in the country foe Multiple Sclerosis. As well as cancer. (It's the thing that Montel has) I think that we have a high rate of brain cancer and testicular cancer. [img]http://streetgangs.com/billboard/templates/subSilver/images/images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] However I'm not sure about the last two. There is a woman who goes around the country and speaks out about this kind of stuff. Her name is Lois Marie Gibbs. She goes to places that have had similar things happen and she holds protests and really tears into the companies.

WOW That sounds like some Nazi Sh#t. I watched a documentary on the holocaust and the survivors talked about how when the bodies were burned in the creamatorium and the ashes used to cover everything and everybody outside. Man that's some bullsh#t. Have you guys tried to get some media coverage or anything? Maybe if you sued?

yeah dude they found fiberglass in menthol cigs, that should be the least of your worries with tish like radio active lead floating around in your smoke.
i stuck to dro for a while but that ended up making me so damn lazy, had to give that up too, and i don't smoke huff or shwag, so that made it a simple transaction.

Interesting Mick. I don't know but I don't see many young dudes with bitch tits who smoke ports. Bitch tits most times come with too much fast food or along with a big old beer gut. Where did you get this factoid? sounds like urban legend

huh, yet a whole pack is $5... That's funny pricing. If you buy 20 stogues for .75 each you end up paying $15

And yeah...smoking will kill ya. I quit for a few days / a week at a time here and there. Started with lights, then Camel Turkish Gold, then Marlboro Reds or Camel Filters, finally the only stogue that had that kick was a Newport. They actually much stronger than any other brand, unless your a fool and smoke Pall Malls, or do that trick where you bite the filter out and just leave the empty paper at the bottom.

The Army truck part of the story is pretty farfetched. For every crisis, be it natural disaster, terrorist attack, illegal dumping--there is always a group of people who see a big bad govt conspiracy behind it.

Some of the stories and accounts *may* be true in SOME cases, but the problem is that conspiracy theorist nutcases, seeing a conspiracy in EVERYTHING, make it impossible to weed through the propaganda garbage and find something (if anything!) that might be halfway accurate.

Government is not necessarily crooked, but rather the people that runs it.
I'am familiar with love canal,and Niagara Falls,and the nearby city of Buffalo N.Y.,what you got there is mediocre leaders ,poor leadership,in general career politicians with no vision who are quite content with things the way they are,as long as they get a sizable paycheck.

You just hit the nail on the f#cking head dude! Did you used to live here or something?? I can't believe I completely forgot to talk about that stuff. Our last mayor, Elia, was a FUKKUP!!! She turned away a huge skateboard convention that all of the skateboarders would have had something to do. She said she didn't want that "Riffraff" in the area. WTF!!!!!???? These kids have nothing to do, so they resort to crime and other things and when something happens that shows some improvement they say f#ck it and collect their money. This B#tch didn't even live in the city. She lived and grew up in LEWISTON!! Now this new mayor wants to make our economy ALL tourism.

I appreciate your support but I don't know either. It's more or less me just blowing off steam over the net. Everybody and their mother talks shit about our area and I can see why. When I was younger I had used to think that we were the wildest, craziest place in the world. But now I know. We had our chance to be something and we blew it. We kept electing one term mayors and nothing ever came out of it. Now we have a shit population and people are leaving day after day. Buffalo is now in the same situation as what happened to us. Their budget crisis will eventually turn them into a ghost town. There is nothing we can do.

I would love to see any of you walk thru Polo Ground Projects in Harlem AnY time of day.


I remember I was visiting one time and sum guys body was found underneath a car right on st. nick place on 148 i think...they hid the body...took everything...jewelry...everything...did the dude dirty...plus the dude had like his face smashed all in...and knife stab wounds everywhere...damn...lol.



It's just wierd that you referenced Brooklyn and Harlem as the bad parts of NY since those are highly desireable places to live. If you go into any projects you're going to see bad areas, but a lot of NYC neighboorhoods are really gentrified. My younger bro lives in Brooklyn and pays 2500 a month for a 2 bedroom. (and that's in not such a great area). You can always get stuff for cheaper but personally I'm not willing to live in the south bronx and risk my life everytime I walk to the subway (and his girlfriend who is loaded lives in a nice apt. in Harlem.) You clearly are not from NY.

areas in harlem and the south bronx get really bad once you hit around 125-130 st. the couple of blocks after the park are good, and some even alright a little past that. however in harlem, there are some areas where rent is high and the crime isn't as bad. but those are closer to the park. in brooklyn there are places like that all over. in harlem however, you wont find so many nice areas if you continue going north and into the bronx.

My man lived up there above 145 for a year and there was two shootings right on his street in a three block radius, within a month from each other. Now I know hoods in LA where you would have 1 or 2 driveby's every six months. But two shootings in a month a couple blocks away from eachother is high by any standard you might have.

This is my neighborhood. It's not Harlem. Rich people call it the ghetto. It has it's share of crime but it's not like the big cities. Those houses are brand new. It was part of a community housing program designed to tear down blight and build new.
