Life in "Progress" City - Lower Manhattan edition

Life in Lower Manhattan, where you can't find a republican with traps baited with money and toy elephants.....

Livid lower Manhattan residents went off on Zuccotti Park protesters at a heated Community Board 1 meeting last night and blasted politicians for not controlling the chaos.

“They’re defecating on our doorsteps,” fumed board member Catherine Hughes, a stay-at-home mom who lives one block from the protest. “The cowbells start at 4 a.m. and the drumming goes past 10 a.m. A lot of people are very frustrated. A lot of people are concerned about the safety of our kids.”

Fed-up homeowners said they’ve been insulted and harassed as they trek to their jobs each morning. “The protesters taunt people who are on their way to work,” said James Fernandez, 51.

The meeting, packed with more than 200 people, spilled out onto the street, where Zuccotti sympathizers began sparring with their critics.

Board member Paul Cantor said sleepless residents can’t take the incessant racket. “If people can’t sleep ... then that’s a problem,” he said.

Geez, out here my little community of "Redville" I slept quite well, was able to drive to work unmolested and no one has shit on my stoop.
