Earnest Lee Saddened
Wouldn’t you like to know the Court I live on,
Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn

Cute name huh? Not as clever as Maury Povich or anonymous1, but like most sane people, I want my nights filled with calm serenity, not antagonized by a band of minor malignancies tearing at the outer shell of my hard earned life for the ego boost they must desperately need. I hope I can rouse some real concern in my neighbors that will bring more attention to the “I’m a GB lifer” parental failures and their loser spawn. Yet the spawn are committing only misdemeanor crime so they can stay the angels of GB since Mom and Dad may not bail them out, on the rare chance they are arrested. Tough to raise a scofflaw renegade snotnose, might miss a Jerry Jerry Jerry thrill! A few may pump gas or even work civil service to keep a roof for mom.
