Not since Oliver Stone, Kevin Costner and Donald Sutherland revealed the true extent of the conspiracy to assassinate JFK has such a revelation shaken us to our very core.
Get ready. Here is it. Cover your eyes. Women and chidren first, please.
Outdated infrastructure issue for SEJ project; Sewer board to meet with New Directions over duel connections, by Daniel Suddeath.That's right. It has been revealed at long last that elements of New Albany's sewer system are antiquated, but for once, can't we look at a sewer pipe half full?
The New Albany Sewer Board will meet with officials managing the S. Ellen Jones neighborhood rehabilitation project to determine how to deal with a problem that likely originated from a common construction pattern of the 1920s ...
... Workers for JonPaul Inc. have uncovered what is known as a Y connection — two houses tapped-on to the same sewer line — on two homes so far.
Duel connections were prevalent in houses constructed in the 1920s and 1930s, sewer board vice president Gary Brinkworth said. But the Indiana Department of Environmental Management has banned joint connections, as Brinkworth said they create problems when it comes to maintenance.
After all, at least the dual connections were not found to be made from tar paper. Surely that's progress.
Okay, okay. We know that a half-century or more of scantily regulated development has left us with inadequacies. The question, as always, is: "What's to be done about it?"
That one should keep us busy until the next profound revelation. If Mrs. Baird's blog comments are any indication, pre-emptive troglodyte hand-warming self-immolations soon will be occurring in the neighborhood that Steve Price continues to forget.
I'll bring free beer and a camera, because that's entertainment.
