Note: A version of this column was originally published shortly after 9/11. Since then, from time to time, it has seemed appropriate to submit it again as a way of expressing the frustration of a populace whose leaders simply will not listen to their will. I offer it again in that spirit.
Imagine you are a child growing up in a small town. You have always felt safe there. The crimes of big cities seem distant from your serene world, where no one ever locks the door.
Then one night your next-door neighbors are murdered in their home, which is burned to the ground. Drawings of the suspects are printed in the newspaper. The sheriff says they speak a foreign language. No one in your town looks or sounds like that.

So simple you would think even a radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbag could figure it out. But alas, nope. If they’re so caring and compassionate, how come they feel the need for security and want to keep their doors locked. That’s not very charitable.
Obviously written “BO” (Before Obastard). Why do I say that? Because the Sheriff stops the bad guys right before torching the house, and then the father secures it. Obastard would never stop someone from torching the country, he’d encourage it, while refusing to secure it.
Not much different than Bush, except the part about encouraging bad people to torch the country.
Our front door stayed locked...it locked automatically..
but our back door was the kind that needed a key to lock it and it was always unlocked unless we were all going out of town and nobody would be home..
then Mum would have to find a key :)
our windows were open day and night all summer unless it was raining...
Every now and then I get one of those email forwards with nostalgic pictures, talking about the good old days when people didn’t have to lock their doors and kids could play outside until the street lights came on. Everybody is nostalgic for those days and agrees that they were better, but nobody talks about why it’s not that way anymore. Instead we just accept it, resigned to our fate.
In my small town, I don’t even bother locking my apartment door. Its safe to the point one can walk the streets at night and violent crime is unheard of. There are places like in the world in which the police don’t have much to do.
Lucky for you. Some places you have to lock your car. Even when you park it in your own garage. LOL!
