I am living in Centennial CO, just outside Denver. Please contact me if we talked at the meeting!
I registered and paid for the Denver summit, but I still haven’t received information about where the event will be held. Is that posted somewhere?
While I agree with the theoretical concern, at least so far, the concerns appear unjustified:
So eat salmon, drink, and be merry today – because one day the fears of contamination may come true!
I understand the emotion about feeling safe in a small town, but many rural areas in the US have high rates (on a per capita basis) of violent crime and always have. Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood” is a true story of a home invasion robbery and murder that occurred in a small town Kansas in 1964. During the Great Depression, there was a lot of violent crime throughout rural America.
I grew up in a small town, and like you, I’ve always felt a sense of safety there. Still, remember that many criminals are transient and they travel around in search of soft targets (and to stay one step ahead of the law). It is wise to be as prepared as possible whereever you live. I have large windows, too, but I use exterior lighting to reduce the perception of that feature as a target.
