Nah, my attempt at humor was just that, humorous. Lighten up a bit. I could (and have) write volumes about what has happened to our sense of community, but this is not he time or place...

I thought it was clever Evets lol! and Andy, I disagree with what you said about "Hyper-Individualism"...Individualism is not the problem, it is the increasing Collectivism that I notice that is destroying the Community...I constantly see groups of people trying, and many time successfully, to force their views and desires on others for the "Common Good"...

don't worry, they are doing their due diligence over on Silver Spring. I passed two cop cars lying in wait on my way to pick up the little one at 1pm. Not 5 minutes later on the return trip they had snagged two suckers.
