It’s amazing stuff, $4 gas is. People are just busting out all over. They’re on the sidewalks, walking. They’re on their bikes, riding. They’re at the bus stops, waiting. They’re playing in their front yards. I have seen this with my own eyes — the stories are true. When I go for my evening walk, I keep seeing the same set of folks doing the same thing. I might see them up there today, down there the next day. Golly, at the rate this is going, we’re seeing so much of each other, we’re going to start having (gasp!) conversations.
It’s as if someone accidentally dropped suburbia and it broke, and the contents are all spilling out over the streets. What’s inside is quite shocking. People! Fairmount Hills is made of people!
