Surrounded by bags of garbage in the drizzling rain, Ron Kyllonen, left, speaks to Chip Frahn after he stopped to see why Kyllonen had been sitting outside Sarah Jeannes on Sabattus Street in Lewiston since 8 a.m. Monday. "Each bag is a representation of our society," Kyllonen said. "It's about Lewiston turning into a cesspool of society. There is garbage everywhere and no one picks it up. And it's the fault of the people because we're allowing them to be pigs." But his anger wasn't just over the garbage. It was over politicians not directly answering questions about the welfare system, and about a slew of other things he believes to be societal issues.
