Lord Byron

I live in Lakewood. Only in certain areas of Lakewood that it isn't as good as it used to be. There are areas that are beautiful... west of Bridgeport Way. But that's where all the wealthy folks live.... naturally. But,, nothing is permanent. The run down parts of the city will come back up eventually. Nothing stays the way it is... that's the beauty of it. That's the nature of things.

I was born in Lakewood and lived on Tacoma for a lot of my life, it's NOT EVEN THAT BAD

I'll take scummy gang places over weird hick Fisher towns like Bremerton, Port Orchard, Shelton, etc
