There’s a reason I never venture north of 24th Street when I’m in Paso.

The Wine Country Inn, what a pastoral and pleasant connotation the name brings.

I’ll say it again.

It’s hard to care about people like this anymore.

There are too many of them, they are sucking us dry.

But he’s not a Mexican farm worker so he’s all right by me!

Good. Get that heroin and meth off the street! Not only is it ruining the lives of the people using, but it’s constantly affecting the victims they burglarize and steal from!

Yes, I am certain this made a huge impact on a lot of addicts lives’ as well as burglaries too. Not.
