Nuke Thy Neighbor
We moved from Los Angeles to Castle Hayne, North Carolina in 1994. It was a big improvement, since there was a meth lab next door to us in LA, and the neighbors shot at us, whereas here everyone in our neighborhood appears to be in the Witness Protection Program, and they only shoot the deer and squirrels. I honestly have neighbors that I have not seen in all those years since we moved here. The cars occasionally park slightly differently, but you NEVER see any people. There's something very odd about that. However, that doesn't keep them from shooting at something, and gunshots are not uncommon. Castle Hayne has a Piggly Wiggly, a post office, and a bank in a double wide trailer. It's a far cry from the traffic on the 405. It's a nice quiet place to raise kids, and I know that if we are ever attacked, my neighbors will have the weapons to defend us. And know how to use them. I did this piece called Nuke Thy Neighbor. It's what I suspect my neighbors might look like, should I ever catch a glimpse of them.
