White trash with tons of money, the South Ender says, and yes, he's referring to the 21-year-old whose parents bought her a $700,000 condo in his building:
... I shouted out the window and asked her to keep it down, as it was 3:30 (a.m.). Her response? "I OWN here - I can do whatever I want. If you don't like it, shut your f%$#in' window." Who says money can't buy you class?!! ...

The South Ender reports that after a recent night out, he and the other four men he was with exchanged good-night kisses:
... We were appalled by the shocked expressions from the Uggh-wearing "trendsetters" staring at us through the windows of the Butcher Shop. You would think we had given each other a big juicy group blowjob by the looks on their suburban/Back Bay/Beacon Hill faces. Don't guys kiss each other goodnight in Attleboro or Marshfield or wherever they're coming from?

Lawrence spent four hours helping clean up the Ronan Park neighborhood in Dorchester today as part of the annual Boston Shines spring cleanup:
... I've lived here for two years and this place has always been a dump. Today I feel like I live in the suburbs. It's actually a really good feeling. Hats of to the Mayor for keeping the city clean. ...
Mike Mennonno takes some photos that prove that just because you live in a million-dollar South End condo doesn't mean you can avoid white trash. Lots and lots of white trash:
Now, when I've brought this up with residents, they kvetch that if they spring for a trash can somebody will steal it. Or, where are they gonna store it? Or what's to stop the rag pickers from digging through trash cans and tossing out the contents, too?
