re the lack of side walks.

i used to live on the island. i moved away 26 years ago (approximately). i moved to an area in prince georges county maryland where we did not have sidewalks. and i loved it. i did not have to clear snow off the sidewalk because there was none to clear. i just shoveled my driveway. the country did the road.

sidewalks are ok in some areas but not in others. in the area you are talking about (its been a long time for me) i remember that i liked the idea of no side walks. but most of all it kept the taxes down.

if you are complaining because you drive through the place and feel people do not belong walkong on the street, then you are wrong. as a driver, you have a responsibility to give way to a person walking on the street.

don't try to force your beliefs on others, just because it inconvience to you.

by the way, the people in the area you are complaining about, do care about their children and themselves.

slow down, take time to smell the flowers.

cheers
