It might be negative, but isn't this an important issue? Perhaps the article will force the city to do something more about these lots. Even if it doesn't, it educates the public about an important problem.

It's a stupid and offensive headline.

The story is about people using empty lots as dumps. However, the headline implies the city is a delapitated and decaying place. It is inaccurate and a cheap shot at the city. More low brow, grade school antics from the wannabe journalists at the Advocate.

dont take it personally.

every liberal paper in any city has headlines like that.

Boston's Weekly Dig is always poking at city issues/politics/etc

New York has the same.

That is why they write for the advocate and not the courant

Remember, it's the people in the suburbs that cause Hartford's problems...they must sneak in at night and dump all their suburban voodoo ware and their used up fighting dogs in the good honest people of Hartford's back yards. :whistling:

To be fair I do totally agree that things like that landfill near the highway etc are not all of Hartford's garbage but from surrounding areas...but then again, the hundreds of trucks pulling into the Manchester landfill to dump are not exactly local either.
