Good or bad, we'll let you decide...

"If you would like to stop living in that box and move into my apartment I think we can work on your biting problem together."

"You were like an angel in a room full of grief..."

Racino pickup line: "if you are free would not mind feeding your machine for a while."

The rare server-for-customer missed connection.

Wonk seeks lady wonk.

You'd notice Murphy if you saw him in Lansingburgh.

With 220+ bottles, that tree is worth at least $11. Someone will be all over that bad boy.

I thought CL prohibited the sale of animals on the site?

Show me a city without a downtown parking problem, and I'll show you a city with a downtown problem. City's should embrace parking shortages as a good problem to have. It means people want to visit your city, and they're willing to pay for it. It seems the people that complain about parking the most, are the suburbanites who think they're entitled to park right in front of their destination for free.
