You can now come to this blog to Gripe because you have the right to do so. Over time, we will Gripe about topics ranging from sports to politics to just about all of the garbage that happens around us. When you Gripe, you can add your name or not. It's your right! You can vent any way you want. Use foul language if you are angry enough to and if you are offended, just Gripe It! Hell, we have been banned from Facebook twice! You can Gripe about people, places and things. The only thing I ask is if you are going to Gripe about someone and you use their name, make sure you have the facts straight. Otherwise they will sue your and my ass off! It's your RIGHT TO GRIPE! You can respond to one of our Gripes or you can lay down your own Gripe. It's easy.

Wilkes-Barre's New Inter-Model Center
I read in yesterday's Times Leader that Wilkes-Barre's new Inter-Model Center is almost complete. Part of this transportation hub will be ready to go in March with the remainder being finished in April or May. The price tag for this Inter-Commodel Center as I call it will be $28,000,000. Yes, $28,000,000! One of the reported highlights for this beast will be 752 new parking slots for the throngs of people who flock to Wilkes-Barre everyday. HA, are you kidding me! The only people who come to Wilkes-Barre are the people who work downtown and the folks who frequent the multitude of clubs and bars that are plastering the Main Streets. After dark, the place is a ghost town except for the bars and Movies 14. The people who go to the movies or the Kirby Center, watch the flick or show and then bolt to their cars in fear afterwords. of course, you always have the square scum that hangs out deterring normal folks from coming after dark. I guess they add to the attraction, like a carnival of misfits. This Inter-Commodel Center will also have spots for buses and taxi cabs as well. It now appears that the drug dealers who come from New York and Philly will have a central location to spearhead their drug trafficking. I guess my big question is, do we really need this thing? Maybe? However, I can think of several better things to do with $28,000,000 including paving some of our streets. The main roads that will take you to the Inter-Commodel Center, Coal St and Wilkes-Barre Blvd are atrocious. When you drive on them you think you are on the lunar surface. The pot holes swallow cars up daily. Its not the aliens taking all those missing people, it's the potholes! Don't get me wrong, once the downtown or should I say if the downtown is revived then maybe we may need an Inter-Model Center. It appears that so far we have made some progress. Right now when I look into my crystal ball I see this expensive transportation hub with no one visiting downtown Wilkes-Barre. The words 28 million dollar albatross immediately comes to mind.
I was driving past the Hotel Sterling this past week and noticed that someone paved the part of River Street right next to the hotel. This new black top is right where they have it blocked off to traffic. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! They pave the part of the road where no one can go! They need to pave W. Market St right by the Guard building. I hit that pot hole the other day and lost a nut.

This one is a no brainer. Ariel Castro may actually be the schmuck of the century. If you don't know what he did then you should take the bridge.
WTF! I thought it was a hot blonde chick. NOT!
