You know what I think? I think that there are a lot of Nobodies in Onamia. But I'd bet money that if all this happened to you, Somebody would get mad, get tough, and try to DO something to stop it. Sometimes the end justifies the mean.

You know things are really bad
when you're too depressed to bother complaining.
There's so much to say, but I'm in a Fuck It state of mind. What difference does it make anyway? Nobody seems to care. I try to stand up for my neighbors against some pretty vile people, and I get called "mean". Yet, it seems the majority of Complacents are all cozy and comfy with the Onamia city council, the mayor, and of course Nexus - who have been more than mean to us. They have been unethical and unfair. We've been lied to. Nobody gets hot about them being mean to the good citizens they're forcing the sex offenders upon. Nobody but the victims themselves even say how wrong things are being handled here in Onamia. The local paper refers to gross injustices and malfeasance as "Boo-boos". Boo-boo is a little bear that lives with Yogi in Jellystone Park. What the mayor and city council are perpetrating is more than just oversights and mistakes. They are guilty of all of the crimes in the feasance family - malfeasance, misfeasance, and nonfeasance. Nobody has realized how serious this is.
Like rewriting the city ordinances for the benefit of ONE corporation and at the detriment to the safety and welfare of the community. Not only is this drastically wrong, it sets a terrible precedent. Nobody minds.
What bothers me most, perhaps, is the way we have been lied to about the escapes and violent crimes committed by the Mille Lacs Academy convicted sex offenders during their tenure. We've compiled the sheriff's and Onamia police reports and the figures are outrageous. I should post the facts on the newspaper, but why bother? Nobody wants to hear the truth anyway.
