    That’s a “Storm Drain”; not a “Sewer”

    Affirmative action employee???

    Must’ve been a “teen”, delivering in a “white privilege” neighborhood.

  5. Fred Griffin says:

    Storm drains are also called storm sewers. If you want to be specific, the sewer connected to your house is a sanitary sewer as opposed to a storm sewer. A sewer is “an underground conduit for carrying off drainage water and waste matter.”

    Would someone please flush the racists here down it?

  7. Marshall Cypress says:

  8. Toksun says:

    making it easier for the porch pirates

    How does the dubious media get away with this type of nothing reporting? What was in the packages? Poison, anthrax, what? Domestic terrorism, sabotage? Are we out of luck if we want to learn more about this? Sewers are run through processing facilities that feed into water supplies. Nothing more to this? No, just bad, cover-up media reporting.

    Also, makes absolutely no sense to trash packages in sewers. Could just leave them for somebody to walk away with, as happens all the time.
