    Reminds me of the old Soviet Union/NKVD, where kids were encouraged to turn in their parents/grandparents for anti-revolutionary actions.

    Sad, but I could see it happening[:(]

    5th's graders essay on "how I spent my summer", though a valid sentiment but delivery is outright pathetic.

    PBJloaf, I highly doubt the practice of turning parents in was as wide spread as people would like to believe, and if one's children turn him/her/them in - they deserve it for doing such piss pour job raising them.

    Now then, did you grow up in old "Soviet Union/NKVD" that something can remind you of it?

    Nope, not a former Soviet citizen , but it SOUNDS like something of that era.

    Is it OK with you that I post my OPINION?

    Nope, nobody is allowed to post a comment that is contrary to their line of thinking. You have to love those who spew rhetoric about tolerance, until they are asked to reciprocate in kind. HOPE & CHANGE

    Google Raymond K. Paden and check out the author' site. He has another short story called COLD STORAGE. It will give you chills about a futuristic senario. I hope these stories he writes never propogate themselves in reality, but they do make for thought provoking reading.
