BOSTON (CBS) – How many times have you said it – to yourself, or out loud to startled strangers – about something in your world that’s so annoying, there’s only one way to describe it: it’s the pits.
I’m talking about the public irritants that drive us nuts around here: the traffic bottleneck on your commute that could be fixed if local government was on the ball – but never is… the intersection so dangerous, even the police are afraid to stand out in it… the public building or piece of “art” so ugly it makes you shake your head every time you see it and think about your tax bill… the construction project you’ve been fighting your way past for years now, and there’s no end in sight.
Is there something like this in your community that you’d like to see me do a story on?
Maybe we can get some answers and even some action, if the problem is correctable. Believe me, you’ll feel better for venting, and you may be surprised at how many others think it – whatever it is – is the pits, too.
So send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me what is the pits in your town.
Let me know how I can reach you, and maybe we’ll go clean out this particular pit together!
