... officials go to further their education. I'm going to put my feeling about the military to the side, and try to visit this place with an open mind.

... back to my car to make sure I don't meet up with him again.

I'm not quite feeling so courageous and proud of myself for having "explored the ghettos" of Harrisburg. I was lucky--that little episode could've ended much differently. I might want to remember this experience next time I'm tempted to explore an American urban ghetto.

Strange. In the 80 countries I've visited, no one's ever threatened me with "you'll never make it out of here alive!"--only in my own ...
