Shooting overblown

Hmm – I was considering moving to the Nation’s Capitol and hobnobbing with the haut monde, but I’ve changed my mind, it is too dangerous.

Here in Nevada County we have our little quarrels, a drug problem, a carjacking now and then and occasionally some domestic violence.

But then, a president plays golf and hits a spectator and it makes worldwide news.

One President treats women with disrespect and sexual harrassment and is forgiven.

Now, the vice president accidentally wounds a hunting partner and you’d have thunk World War III had started from all the furor that it has caused.

So, with all that, you don’t mind if I stay here in the confines of Nevada County where if a person transgresses we consider the act and judge accordingly.
