    Looks like a cesspool to me. I'll stay safe in the suburbs, thank you.

    Edit: double use of "cesspool."

    The most depressing part: 1990 was 25 years ago.

    Couldn't tell the men from the women... T-shirts, jeans with belts, white tennis shoes, mullets, and big ol' shades. At the time we thought we looked cool.:doh:

    I didn't mind the squeegee guy since the were doing something for the $1 and my windshield did need cleaning. The guys I hated were the ones that would just walk up to your car while you were waiting at a light and beg.
