The new year and a new start is what is drilled into our pee brain human minds. One who is faced with many obstacles can either crawl or drown. The stage of being shocked is still raw slapped across my face. The month of December is historically my worst month financially and emotionally as well as many Americans. My piss of a job is a whores social job to society, working as a bartender and acting the part is both exhausting and financially crushing. For the past year I would say it has been an adventure. Money was decent and I could live comfortably. The last two months have been a roller coaster ride in and out of the fiery gates of the labyrinth. The local Bay City and Ti-City media attention to the street has now ruined a reputation of a place to party and drink a few adult beverages. The street consist of seventeen bars and nightclubs, music venues and cigar bars. A lively place. What has happened that sparked the medias attention in the recent months, Fight!. Yes Fights. I laugh and wonder why Fights! Since we have been serving beer in society there has been fights, scuffles and hostility. So why all the attention. A pizza shop business owner named Kevin Novettelli, filmed a larger shoving match outside a nightclub. The night club named The Westown, attracts the Hip Hop Culture, the urban crowd. Bay City is a small town that is the furthest north larger city before the rest of Northern Michigan comprises of two street light towns and villages. The city as a whole draws these people from around the North, South and West. A true Midwestern melting pot town. The northern crowd are still old America that consist of racist and un cultured citizens. The southern towns are a bit more cultured but have ethnic areas of people. With the Culture and lack there of around the surrounding communities creates a strange street to bar hop on. With seventeen bars and the mix of ideological principles, some groups naturally hate other groups. Since The Westown Is a urban Hip Hop Night Club, racist and uneducated business owners feel threatened. This is where Kevin, our Pizza Shop owner comes in, he had felt that change was needed on the street like Change was needed in the U.S. Politics. Kevin filmed a shoving match outside and sent the video to the local News media Channel Five, He also posted the video on YouTube and social networking website Face book. Since the first Reports on the news channel, they posted reporters on the street the following three weeks and did what media does best, find the most uneducated redneck or drunk to tell them what they wanted to hear, the streets are unsafe and people are fighting. They never cover both sides of the story because that would simply not work for ratings. My overall tips are down 60% since the medias antics. Who is to blame? We cannot blame poor Kevin or the media, the blame is on the uneducated citizen that gives in to fear mongering.

flowing
it's a nice stream of consciousness flowing, though hard to read en masse, non-paragraphed, solid - I think it works for you.
