HN NOTES: The goal of making downtown Hyannis an ever-growing outpatient ward has its unfortunate tradeoffs.
Sure, for some there will be service industry job security, but for every job created, there will be many others not happy about what those industries bring.
There will be restaurant patrons stepping around poor souls with gravity issues. There will be overdoses and crime. There will be tourists “turned off” from the whole Main Street experience. There will be residents complaining about Hyannis always shouldering the region’s problems when other villages do not…
… and, of course, there will be HN documenting it – the people overdosing, bleeding, and suffering on our sidewalks in front of visiting families, wondering, “WTF?”
It’s poor planning, sticking all the service agencies in the Main Street tourist areas and surrounding neighborhoods… but at this point, I don’t think anybody really cares…
… and I personally don’t think we’ll ever be able to reverse our downward trajectory towards being the best slum we possibly can be.
I hope I’m wrong. But truly, if I wanted to make Hyannis the best little slum on the East coast, I wouldn’t change a thing. I would keep doing what we’re doing right now.
It’s about high time we all accept it, the world needs poorly planned slums like Hyannis in order to make the other tourist destinations seem more appealing by leaps and bounds.
We need everyone driving around hammered, crashing into one another. Heck, we also need cops getting sloshed on duty, crashing our police cruisers…
No, we’re doing fine, just fine… especially if our goal is to become a better cesspit.
As you will see and hear in the following video, a poor Hytown service industry client had issues with gravity earlier this evening.
