For a beautiful neighborhood, Ruxton is acting awfully ugly

May 09, 2011

This former resident of Ruxton is not amused at the ugly show of prejudicial stigma against the mentally ill by it current residents.

When the light rail was proposed to have a station in Ruxton, the same sort of bigotry was trotted out against the "blacks in the city."

There are plenty of unsound minds and substance abuse in Ruxton; I know I lived there for years. The hue and cry now emanating from Ruxton that a few more folks with unsound minds and a bit of substance abuse issues might be joining the neighborhood is a logical absurdity.

Ruxton is physically beautiful, but beauty is as beauty does, and by that token it's one of the ugliest neighborhoods in the state.

Very Sincerely yours,

Laura Lee Cox
