Bloggers, Grab Your Cameras

Amy Alkon, who we have criticized before (and who is apparently a friend of NBS fave Jackie Danicki) has redeemed herself in our eyes for her excellent approach to the rude and intolerable. Calling them out on it! What a novel idea!
Amy's latest act of civic heroism? Taking on a completely inconsiderate moron, who had her car stereo's bass pounding in a residential neighborhood after hours. From Amy's blog:
I came out to ask her to turn it down -- "Excuse me, but did you notice the houses four feet from your car?" -- and she lectured me on how I should ask respectfully! Well, that pissed me off, so I told her I was going to photograph her and put her on my blog as a loud, rude, neighborhood disturber.
So Amy did take the girl's picture, and man, are those pictures worth checking out.
And then the crazy fool called the cops. On Amy! Like she thought photographing rudeness was a crime or something. Or that there's some Constitutional right not to have your picture taken. The rude idiot then waited an hour for the cops to show up (to what, bust Amy?), and when they did, the rude chick was wearing a pro-pot t-shirt, with a cannabis leaf on it and everything. Not exactly the smartest thing to wear when you call the cops.
Here at NBS, smoking out the rude and idiotic is a cause celeb, and we are inspired by Amy. The digital camera is already by the car keys.
