While working on a magazine article about the deterioration of University Avenue in Little Rock, Ark., and attempts to restore it, I ran across this depressing scene and pulled out my camera.
It's sad when this type of thing is common in this city.
University Avenue, at one point in time, was the commercial center of Little Rock. That's changed over the past decade, but fortunately the University of Arkansas at Little Rock -- which is located off of the avenue -- is involved in an effort to renovate the area.
I hope UALR, the businesses and citizens' groups involved with the effort are successful.
Well, this here photo just got pulled from the magazine article I was working on. Why? Because it's "too negative," according to the powers that be.
So, you're looking at a The Natural State Hawg exclusive! Hot dog!
