Bastard of the Day

Today's award goes to suburban xenophobes who oppose sidewalks. A Chicago Tribune article details the latest "controversy:" suburbanites don't want sidewalks because they are afraid of who might be walking in their neighborhoods:

[Hubert] Frank, 68, who organized a petition for Whitehall Drive, said sidewalks could also pose a safety risk by welcoming strangers into the neighborhood. "There's strange things happening in the world today, so why would we want to open up that possibility?" he said. "We are connected, we all know each other. The concern is, who knows what you'd be encouraging to come through."

Surely the next jihad will be charging into Northbrook on their new sidewalks!

As unbelievable as it may seem to suburbanites, some people walk places instead of driving everywhere. And some of those people are even employed and white just like you, you whiny bastards.

I'm surprised--I had thought they would be more concerned about strangers trampling their fancy yards.
