    The new West Side continues its transition to Chicago-like violence and crime.Five years from now,this won’t even be reported.Too boring.
    Great idea:Let’s build more low income housing on the 1400 block of Alpine–to make the area decline even more.This city is on a death spiral.You don’t try to stop the ghetto from taking over,by inviting them TO take over.These section 8 houses on Fourth st(and surrounding areas)need to be wiped out–and rebuilt–out of the price range of “low income” types.Let them live in Flint or Benton Harbor–that’s if you care about where your city is headed,Mayor Bliss.
