poo everywhere, this is Australia's dirty secret

Unlike beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy, there are human excrements everywhere in Darwin's streets. A shopping centre manager has to use fire house three times a day to wash the poo away from public areas. And once those excrements got hosted away, the new one comes.

Darwin is known to be a very hot place in Australia, no beautiful snows. Unfortunately, not everybody in Darwin is well educated and disciplined like those in beautiful Boston.

Here's the news report: Darwin's 'dirty secret' washed from streets (news.com.au, 17 January 2011)

So you are implying that Darwin represents all of Australia in terms of the quality of its streets?

I did not say it represents entire Australia, however, Darwin is the major and the largest town in Northern Territory (NT) in Australia.
Clearly, the said major town in Australia is unlike orderly cities such as beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy with friendly citizens.

You call it "orderly" and "with friendly citizens" here, after all the stories I've told you of the exact opposite being true? There have been a number of occasions where I've seen and/or heard passerby randomly yell at each other, and I know I told you about the time I watched a drunk guy urinate on the train.

Well, orderly cities such as beautiful Boston and picturesque Quincy with friendly citizens might occasionally not behave their best. In other word, what you mentioned is not happened daily.
From the news article, it is clear such poo everywhere is daily basis, and not just one small part of Darwin.

And how, may I ask, are you able to determine that, without having once ever visited Boston or Quincy?

It is one of those "of course" things. America is the country millions of people wish they could call it home, Boston is one of the major cities in the USA, it must be clean and to a very high standard. Simple.

Well, sadly, you forgot that I keep telling you that your "of course" things are almost always false, one-sided, and illogiclal.

Well, it is called beautiful Boston, hence it must be beautiful. Also, I have been looking at Boston news and photos, no such low thing in Boston.
Posted by Antony on 21 January 2011 1:39 AM.
You're the one that calls it beautiful Boston, hence that is just your opinion.
Of course the news isn't going to cover things like people yelling at each other of drunkards urinating on the train, they're going to want to cover the bigger, more significant news items.

You really need to learn to look at big pictures - the many many beautiful parts of beautiful Boston, not the tiny hard-to-find slightly below standard things.

All I really need to do is go outside to see how things really are.

You neglect to mention that the public toilets are closed at night and that the cause is possibly itinerant, and homeless, persons. This is information in the same article that you chose not to include on your blog. I hope that your beautiful Boston never experiences unemployment enough to force people onto the streets and closes its public toilets so that those homes are left without any civilised recourse.
