An Ill Wind

A rather large storm hit my little bubble of prosperity.

The next day brought out rude, self-centered behavior in people as they struggled to find food and gas for their cars at the few merchants that still had power...we even had modest amounts of violence.

If a few days without power can bring about such things in the land of millionaires and billionaires...what chance did Iraq really have?

When you are powerless to feed or even protect your family, you will take any offer that promises you a chance to do so, no matter what that offer is.
