I was inspired by this thread and wondered, how well do you know your neighbors? Without rehashing the whole race thing it seems to me, that if the person who had initially made the call, about an intruder, to the police had known who her neighbors were this whole mess could have been avoided. I admit, I am guilty of not being on more than a nod and wave hello basis with most of the people on my block. Oddly, I know the names of most of the children under 12 on the block, but not their parents. I'm not a perv, it's because they always come around selling candy or magazines for school and I just can't say no, to those chocolate covered, pecan, caramel clusters. I think they call them Katydids.
