Here’s an interesting scenario: While shopping in the local grocery store, located in a strip mall in the mid‐
Cape Cod area, I overheard a conversation between two women. They were talking about their neighbors who,
tragically, had recently lost their 22 year old son to a heroin overdose. They were remarking about “kids these
days” and “the drug problem on the Cape.” Each expressed opinions — mostly about who to blame — and sorrow.
Unfortunately, neither expressed very much shock.
