Discrimination against single people

This sign – seen at the Anderson Days festival last weekend – shows just how far they go out in that Cincinnati suburb to push their family values.

  1. It won’t be my last time, for certain. Just never been much for the suburbs. The sign was on a ride at the festival, meaning, “No one can ride in a seat by themselves, there had to be more than one rider.” Not no single peeps.
    Yes, Melissa, Anderson does have a nice YMCA. And you can walk around there with less fear that you will be a victim of crime. I’ll give you that. But when was the last time anyone walked around Anderson? You can’t walk to the Y. You can’t walk to the grocery store. You can’t walk to get your haircut. Very little public transportation is available. I could go on and on. It would be better if people would embrace our urban core and work to build it instead of abandoning it for the safe havens of unsustainable places like Anderson Township. Just my thoughts.
