I was privileged to teach a week long course at a church in the city (located near the intersection of Page and Kingshighway).  Class started at 7:15 pm each night after a lecture; and class ended at 9 pm.  However, on Friday, class started at 6 pm.  Something occurred to me on Friday as I was driving home to West County after an exhausting week.  In the city, people congregate on their front porches, on the street corner, at local stores, kids play on the sidewalk, etc.  You actually see people visiting, talking, jiving, etc. with each other.  I noticed this while driving to the church in the early evening and while driving home late in the evening too.  In the county, you see the opposite.  In general, you don’t see people congregating on their front porches, on the street corner, at local stores, etc.  You typically don’t see people visiting, talking, jiving, etc. with each other like you do in the city.  One may see teenagers congregating on parking lots but you don’t see what I saw in the city.  Why is this?
