Are you serious? Would you risk flooding your yard and home because you think it’s the city’s job to clean your sewer grates? It only takes a minute to clean, take a plastic bag, put the leaves and garbage inside the bag throw it in the trash. Two minutes of your time to save you a major headache.

We’re a week removed from the bombing in Boston. And the cable network news agencies have created more heroes than there were victims.
