- Bad Vibrations
People in the Mallard Cove neighborhood of East Fort Worth are awfully self-centered. They funnel many thousands of dollars into their biggest asset — their homes — and then get all persnickety when somebody tries to plop noisy, toxin-belching compressor stations next door.

Vibrations from the compressors might ceaselessly rattle their houses, windows, and pots and pans. And airborne toxins might make their children bleed from the nose. What a bunch of whiners.

For those keeping score at home, the only mosh pit on West Berry Street happened in front of a band that has zero electric instruments.
