About Me

My photo
Go out with you? Why not... Do I like to dance? Of course! Take a walk along the beach tonight? I'd love to. But don't try to touch me. Don't try to touch me. Because that will never happen again. "Past, Present and Future"-The Shangri-Las

Natural Beauty and Human Horror

This NPR story about an isolated FEMA trailer park is so harrowing I can scarcely believe it made it onto the airwaves. These people describe an utterly nightmarish life. Go ahead and offer up a prayer for them.

The photo gallery that accompanies the story on the website shows a place of real visual beauty. The sunlight filtering through the trees looks so lovely that I almost wish I lived out there. Behind the images of natural beauty and charming homemaking, though, is a story of real horror.
