Got invited on outing to Holyoke Mall A.C. Moore crafts store, turns out store has moved from one end of the mall to the other, while we were walking through the mall, the fire alarms went off, slow, high-pitched oscillations, no one paid any attention to them, made being in the mall much more bearable. Went to a Dairy Queen near Westover after, appears Chicopee teens are a lot more sullen & disaffected than Northampton teens. Made me think about some statistics my friend Adam told me about relative rates of sexual abuse of children from military and nonmilitary families at the alternative youth detention camp where he worked, can't remember the exact figures, apart from the rate for girls from military families at the facility being 100%. Here, why not look at some pictures taken with a cell phone to take your mind off what I just said.
