    We have thought often of moving to the country but know from friends/relatives that the same inconsiderate behavior goes on there. Guns especially.

    The thing I keep pondering is what exactly is causing so many young males to go down a path of no return? I see many of them since moving to middle - disaffected, stoned/addicted, aimless,...

    I thought about this as I looked for a toaster oven today. What used to be a simple device has turned into something that is way too complicated and expensive IMO.

    The problem as I see it is that so many people these days live inside their own minds with grievances they believe are real. They have either not been taught or are not capable of feeling empathy for...
