    I posted a longer comment below. 2 days without gas and I was seeing real tension at the gas station, fighting and such.

    I am from a rural area where people do band together and help. The big city has a lot of pockets of that. But it also has problems and bad people and I choose to consider them in the large picture of things to plan for just in case.

    The comment is taken as a whole; the part you seem to be objecting to is context for the part about why Waynes blowing this all out of proportion. I point to the moon and you quibble with my finger.

    Lots of people help out, some people might cause problems: you can prepare for them or not.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

      ... which was hit with a similar situation as the one you experienced earlier in the summer.  Many parts of the city were without power for close to two weeks in the stifling heat of a southern summer.  Of course, we have the National Guard activated almost immediately (New Orleans had seen a bigger problem 7 years earlier), with curfews and the whole nine yards.  It amazed me how people were helping each other during our situation.  We have a major gun problem here, but it didn't re-assert itself in full until a couple of weeks after "normalcy" was restored.

      I haven't been here long enough to be considered a Kossack, does that mean that I'm just a sack?

      LaPierre is a liar. A salesman of the worst cut.

      Very successful.
