Anchorage is making cities like Chicago look like Shangri-La. I think I'll cancel my move to Alaska and stay down here in the lesser 48 where you can walk into a Walmart without worrying about what granny has hidden underneath her blanket while motoring around the store in her electric scooter.

I've noticed a large and sudden shift towards lawlessness lately. Having the violence move indoors is taking it beyond the "normal" cabin fever.
