Folks, we do have a LOT of pot holes around here. Sometimes they’re pretty interesting for a historian – you can see layers of city history in them. Some go deep enough that you can see the bricks that used to pave the road (sometimes more than one layer of them) and the old streetcar tracks pop up pretty regularly. Others go so deep, though, that I think you can actually see all the way to Carbondale.
Driving around this time of year can be like getting the magic fingers on an old hotel bed – well, that’s a NICE way of putting it. Another way of putting it is that after a drive down Grand Avenue, you might look at your tonsils and think “hemmorhoids.”
So now KFC is saying they want to fill the pot holes themselves. That’s right. Kentucky Fried Chicken.
