    Another normal night on the NEW and IMPROVED(thanks to liberal mayors Heartwell and Bliss)West side.Winter is supposed to be the quiet time of the year in the ghetto.This stuff could happen any night and and any time in these areas now–it’s THAT bad.One night,it’s Straight st,then there’s Alpine on another.Garfield on the other side of Bridge or McReynolds and Fourth st are all unsurprising shooting areas.Many more.The mayor has to recognize the severity of the problem–it’s only goIng to get worse–and change the mindset.Less low income housing,more middle to higher income housing.
