Members of the Alliance for Congregational Transformation Influencing Our Neighborhood will march from St. Patrick Church on Oak Hill Avenue at 10 a.m. to the store, on the corner of Market Street and Cleveland Avenue. The march is to call attention of South Side residents concerned about the adult business in their neighborhood.

Yeah, because that's the biggest problem on the South Side...

A sex shop may not be the biggest problem , in isolation , but it contributes to the degeneration of a neighborhood . I applaud these concerned citizens . The rest of the Valley is dumping its problems on the Southside - if those in good areas want a sex shop ; let them have it in their own neighborhood . Ditto for liquor stores - the Southside needs them like I need a hole in the head .

A potent mix of low expectations, poor schooling , poor urban planning & land uses, & racism causes blight. I'm oftem amazed at how "the suburbs" , knowing the living conditions on the Southside , expect Southside communities to be like theirs .

If concerned Southsiders , both residents & absentee owners get to know each other & work together to clean their neighborhoods , repair buildings , be a little more discerning in tenant selection , always report crimes , oppose the likes of sex shops & liqor stores etc; blight will flee .

Why do they call it a book store? Do they even sell books there? I mean, given the lack of education around that area, can the people that frequent such facilities even read?
