Porterdale's 911 dilemma

Dear Editor: Unfortunately more and more smaller cities such as Porterdale will not be able to afford to be a functioning city.

In case you didn't know, if I get around a lot of New Yorkers, I suffer from a number of reactions.

Deadly games

They take their hands and place them around their throats, squeezing and breathing heavily until their blood vessels dilate. Their blood pressure falls causing their brains to become inadequately supplied with blood and oxygen. Sometimes a belt or scarf, a rope or bicycle chain is used to impede the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain, causing light-headiness before kids pass out. And the average age of the people participating in what is known as "The Pass-Out Game" is 14.
