My neighborhood, my entire county, is becoming crime time central! Headline in the paper this morning--Wow! I used to skip the bus and walk home from high school in that area! Right now, sitting here at my computer typing this, I can't think of one safe spot in THE ENTIRE STATE! I'm not exaggerating. The 60's and 70's, OK, yes, there were a couple of major incidents in the county that I recall, perhaps a handful of stuff happened, but overall, kids could ride bikes, explore the woods, see how far our walkie-talkies could reach. I recall 10th grade, reading Run, Baby, Run by Nicky Cruz and surprised at how rough the city gangs were in the book. Now as an adult, I hear conversation, "Oh, yeah, a couple of those gang members were in Wendy's the other day."
