The most recent media headline here in the Electric City has been the case of a woman who is being charged criminally for yelling at her toilet. A woman from the city's West Side was screaming obscenities at her overflowing commode next to an open window. Due to the very dense population of this city, one of her neighbors, an off-duty Scranton police officer, screamed at her to shut up because there were kids in the neighborhood who could hear her "potty-mouth." She screamed "Mind your own f-ing business" back at him. The ACLU has agreed to represent her in court because it is not illegal to swear at a police officer, but the Scranton PD maintains that they are charging her with disturbing the peace---not with harassing a police officer, so her defense is sunk.

Isn't it great that I'll be leaving the city in 2009 as it is "going down the drain?" (Get it? Get it??!!!) We should have a "potty" to celebrate!

It put Scranton on the map for its 15 minutes of fame.

Scranton is only famous for its local office of Dundler-Mifflin Inc, a company that does not even exist.

Well now, there is a whole new angle to the phrase dirty mouth.
I would love to see how ACLU will present the evidence and distinguish it from her words. ACLPoo really needs to find some meaningful cases instead of finding a case full of $#it.

But, you are leaving the city? After all of the praises and photo tours that is the last statement I thought will come out from you. I am surprised! Your significant other (hope all is well) is moving or something?

Nope. I will always love this city with all of my heart. However, I just can't stand watching it revitalize nicely in recent years while 99.9% of the city's residents do nothing but B*TCH, B*TCH, B*TCH day-in and day-out about how "awful" they all have it. I don't want to live in a neighborhood full of people who always look at the glass "half-empty"; it would just be too depressing and would get on my nerves after a while.
