What shithole place did you live to have all that happen?
Ryder Spearmann

In America — or really, in the world — you do not have to live in a “shithole” place to be the victim of assault and/or harassment. I was living in bucolic and normally safe Cambridge, MA, in the mid-80’s when most of these attacks occurred. Only one of the gunpoint muggings was in NYC. In broad daylight. In the back of a cab.
