Good Old Salem, U.S.A.
From time to time you read a survey of the U.S.’s most high crime city; most expensive city; the most desirable to live in city, and others.
I think the crime figures many times are based on just how creative the police leaders and civic leaders can get in redefining what is considered a murder or domestic squabble, or robberies or whatever.
The most desirable city – I think Atlanta and Metro Atlanta ranks up high on the most desirable list and so does Raleigh, North Carolina, and New York City.
I think the most desirable place I would like to live in is Salem, U.S.A. Salem, U.S.A. is the county seat of a county called “Days of Our Lives”.
In Salem, you hardly see anybody work. Most people stand around and talk about their love lives all the time. Sometimes some of the men folk get to into a near-hitting fist fight, but they hardly ever get banged up with bruises or anything like that.
Many towns have a goose laying golden eggs to keep the economy healthy. In Marietta it used to be Lockheed Aircraft and the military bases, which, but now, it is being a hub of outer Atlanta; Canton, Georgia, it was the cotton mills; some towns it is tourism, and you get the idea. With Salem, there is no product, so the citizens don’t have to worry about productivity.
And sometimes they run their nemesis Stepheno (The Phoenix), or his kin, out of town. But on the whole, they just stand around and talk about their love lives, and how complicated things can get.
Another good thing is they the people don’t grow old. There are grandparents who look like teenagers who are always having hot-blooded love affairs.
Another good thing, if blood is thicker than water, then you don’t have to worry about going without a meal or a place to stay, because in no time you will be related to almost everybody in town and need a genealogy program to graph out just how you are related to each person.
