In downtown Athens–there was about a block of it, around the square–there was the Limestone Drugstore. Kids came in like hoplites or cohorts or hordes, or anyway one of those things in history and leaned their BB guns near the door, with their baseball gloves too usually.

Now the black folks up north are killing each other by hundreds, the papers say, and I’m not sure why that’s a good idea, but then blacks in places like Newark and Detroit have really good schools because Northerners really care about blacks and they mostly go to Harvard, so I guess it’s a lot better. As boys, which is to say small barbarians in need, when alone together, of socialization, we insulted each other.
