Local: the ongoing decline and fall of Camden
Our Detroit. A city that once made everything from canned soup to radios and TVs to battleships to pens, with a little art-deco high-rise city hall whose clock still lights up at night. It’s broke so it has to get rid of its police (I think it already let go half of them) and settle for part of the county police doing the job.

I appreciate the men on the line, in their patrol cars at the borders of our inner ’burbs late at night, literally guarding our towns.

That said, they can’t really stop crime, just try to catch someone after he hurts you. With a gun, you can.
