    New use for abandoned big box stores

    At least one fugitive has found that an abandoned big box store makes a nice place to live and hide.

    Story (no reg. required)
    As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. - H.L. Mencken

    To go from prison to a 4 x 10 closet -- is that an upgrade? At least he was safe and installed a smoke detector. Bizarre.
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    Oh sure.. just hide in an abandoned building... eventually they'll find you there... it'd be better to hide in some woods or rural area.
    But at least he put a smoke detector... so he wouldn't burn if the store caught on fire. It'd have been funny if it had and he had called 911 or something... like that won't get you caught.
    So now he's back to his other 4x10 closet.

    And in that closet there isn't anyone looking to make you their girlfriend.

    And you have other types of control over your life. A little freedom is better than no freedom. And figuring out how to survive under such circumstances sounds more Alive to me than waiting on your cot for your sentence to end.
