I expected more election activity on the street in Huey Pierce Long’s homestate.
No one handing out walking around money, could hardly tell an election was happening
except on TV where the heads were screaming.

Learned about the “hot light” in Raleigh, NC. Krispy Kreme fires up a “hot now” neon light when they birth a new batch of their glazed doughnuts. Natch, they have an app.

truck gravity trap

But for those who venture in, there are gravity traps, constrained roadways
and Crazy neighbors with pitchforks
