Though I understand the importance of the community's involvement in public safety and realize the potential for harm in a lot of situations, but it is quite apparent that there are many , many Valdez citizens with way too much time on their hands these days. Or it could be that, for some unknown reason, Valdez has recently acquired the largest group of Busy Bodies that have ever congregated in one small town since the beginning of time. Does anyone mind their own beeswax anymore? Good Lord.
