    That cutting the brake lines thing really works huh?

    I always thought they should bring a crackhead with them on space missions along with a limited supply of crack. If something went wrong up there, that crackhead is going to figure out how to get back. He ain't staying out there.

    I lived in the Wyoming Valley for over 10 years, just outside of Wilkes-Barre, south of Scranton.

    The whole area is rife with longstanding political corruption. Joe Biden hails from that area. Need I say more?

    The fundamental problem is that since the collapse of the anthracite coal mining industry in the 1960s, a lot of people have no jobs and no real reason to be there unless they are a corrupt politician. Even employment in the Italian Mafia has fallen off. So there is really nothing to do except smoke crack and have sex with farm animals.

    Wilkes barre Scranton area is kind of rough. I live in Honesdale and go to wilkesbarre for training sometimes. I always love my hometown more when I’m coming back from Wilkes barre.

    I was riding my bike to two jacks motorcycle dealer and ended up at Sherman hills apartments. :(. Holy crap what a dump. No wonder two jacks has 10 foot fences with razor wire.

    The main youth industry in Wilkes-Barre appeared to be riding the bus to New York City (which took a couple of hours), score some heroin, ride the bus back, and sell it that night at a profit.

    Not a place I wish to visit. Last time around that area was in 1982 and it was not the best then.
    I wonder if he is still the boyfriend of her dreams?
    IDIOT, needed capital letters for this one.

    A lot of economic stuff factors in to creating the "rust belt"... Bottom line is always the same... A once beautiful and thriving place turns real ugly and the people that remain can be bitter clingers.... Bummer....
