Ahhh.... another one of our diverse people living in's nice to see that our diverse friends have their pictures in the papers and on the news so much these days. Queens is becoming almost as bad as the Bronx these days. I thought the politicians told me that Queens was vibrant and diverse.....but they never mentioned that vibrant and diverse comes with walking garbage!
