The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

A Post About Charleston

The Q kept trying to think of something useful or unique to say about the terrorist killings in Charleston. I couldn't think of anything. If you've seen the beginning of Selma, maybe you got that punch in the gut feeling when you heard the news. I just hope the mainstream media don't excuse this as another "lone madman" thing, rather than look at the deeply troubling issues of guns and racial hatred.

I don't know how to do a moment of silence on the internet. Maybe just shutting up now will suffice.
