So Joe recently lamented about how he much prefers life on the Palouse as opposed to life in Seattle. Today I was reminded by my news ticker why I didn’t rush back to where I grew up after college.
The robbers, who were black and in their early 20s, were armed with a handgun and pepper spray. The man was about 6 foot with a skinny build. He was wearing a dark jacket and jeans. The woman was 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-5 wearing a black jacket and Mickey Mouse pajama bottoms.
Broad daylight on a moderately busy street, 1 mile (seriously by street) from where I grew up. When I go back and visit family and friends, I remember it’s nowhere near like when I grew up there. It’s much less forgiving and much more dangerous.
Frankly, I like the town I live in where I trust my neighbors and they trust me. We know that should the excrement hit the fan, we are more than willing to help each other out.
Yeah, there’s a lot to be said for living out here.
TMM is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
Many know his private name and information however due to the current political climate, many are distancing themselves due to the abandonment of Due Process.
