Barren Barrington

Sam's is gone. Dooley's is gone. Government wants to spread its ugly sprawl there amid the sub shops and used book stores. Our downtown is a fucking disgrace. Punctuated by bums on every corner, Barrington Street has all the appeal of downtown Detroit

Sam's is gone. Dooley's is gone. Government wants to spread its ugly sprawl there amid the sub shops and used book stores. Our downtown is a fucking disgrace. Punctuated by bums on every corner, Barrington Street has all the appeal of downtown Detroit. If I were getting off a cruise ship and wandered on Barrington, I'd hustle my wrinked ass back on board for a double bourbon. When a total shit stack like Saint John can put us to shame downtownwise you can bet something's very wrong with our civic government. If they could stop bickering about bull plop, they might see that revitalizing downtown could benefit everyone in HRM.

Sad at the Downtown Demise
