As we were saying ...
New Albany OKs garbage deal; Private company's trucks roll Tuesday, by Ben Zion Hershberg (Courier-Journal).
The city of New Albany completed a contract yesterday with the company that will take over garbage collection on Tuesday.
Company managers said residents will see no difference in the service, which will be provided by 23 city sanitation workers they expect to hire. The workers will use seven new company trucks.
Apparently Santa Claus neglected to stuff AA batteries into CM "Slipper Larry" Kochert's tattered Christmas stockings, rendering him unable to activate his mobile communications system in order to provide the C-J's Hershberg with the Gang of Four News Agency's (GFNA) official proclamation of gloom, despair and agony for the coming year.
It's just as well, because we're going to have a great year in 2006 -- with or without the city council's Gang of Four, the Lite-swilling denizens of the Luddite Bar & Grill, the Main Street gay baiters, the cutesy-pie potty people, masked character assassins and the spitwad blogyarders.
All twelve of 'em.
Happy New Year, New Albania.
