    Deborahmorgan, I hope for your sake your moving to some remote location devoid of humans. There’s crime everywhere unfortunately.

      TOOMANY Yes there is crime everywhere, however the TYPE of crimes being committed and the AMOUNT of crime is what matters. Making some vague statement to try and defend your home town is meaningless. Lol. I hope you don’t actually believe “everywhere” as you put it is like Scranton, because it is not. Although I’ve noticed the only way most Scranton locals can cope with the environment they have created is to try and convince themselves that “everywhere” is like Scranton.
