PW readers sound off.
Regarding last week’s cover about a PSPCA raid on a South Philly home:
People need to refocus on the REAL issue here: How the city’s agencies failed yet again; Another alleged disreputable Council member from South Philadelphia; Mental health and hoarding issues; An overloaded, under funded PSPCA; That South Philly is supposedly full of inbred OGs. I guess you can take your pick. It’s all an absolute shame and embarrassment. So get it cleaned up. This didn’t need to happen.

I just wanted to say that not all of us “OG’s” are whack-jobs. I have no idea why people are siding with the Rotonta’s and their house of horrors. Anyone who thinks it’s OK for a neighbor to wallow in feces and contribute to the suffering of animals needs their South Philly pass revoked. I hope the (sane) neighbors on Earp St. can come together and take a stand against this bullying trash.

Regarding the city’s trash compactors:
No pun intended, but the new trash cans kinda stink. I like the idea of communal recycling bins though. We need larger ones where one can walk a block and throw their recyclables into large compartments, perhaps put them into the ground.
