Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

Pulled up to my garage door at about 8:30pm. There were a couple of guys hanging out around an old car in the abandoned lot two addresses down. "How's it goin'?" they said. "Hey what's up," I said. As I put my bike in the garage a new-type black Ford Escort with a dent in the body over the front drivers-side wheelwell squeeled up and three white guys in police vests jumped out. They put my neighbors up against the car, hands on their heads. I decided to watch, like I sometimes do in situations like this. I couldn't hear what the cops were saying, but they were patting the guys down. I went inside to drop off my bag and watched some more from the back patio. After a while the cops left.

I thought about it, and decided that it would be best to go out and explain to my neighbors that I hadn't had anything to do with the cops coming, that I just happened to get home at that time. I was worried about what they thought about me. We had a brief confused conversation. I was trying to disassociate myself from the incident, while they were trying to thank me for my association with the incident because they believed that I had been helpful in minimizing the harassment, or at least were saying in order to be polite.

It's nice not to have people assume the worst of you.
