I went by the liquor mega-store this week and there were four cars in the parking lot. Inside there were a couple of customers and a couple of clerks. The deli was closed.
About a week ago I was walking home from Juarez and the streets of downtown were empty. I mean not completely empty, but traffic was light. Very light. It felt like one of those post-apocalyptic science fiction flicks. Like Omega Man, or I am Legend, but without the vampires.
It’s hot. So maybe everyone stays home. Maybe they’ve gone to their house in La Jolla, or Vail, or Puerto Peñasco, or Ruidoso.
Are they coming back?
