The Baccoo Speaks
People are not as careful as they should be because they are not thinkers. In fact, some of them have become more superstitious as their intellectual level diminishes. That is why they have resorted to things unnatural to avert disasters.
That is why when the next fire strikes, the victims would be surprised although the incident would be because of their own carelessness. The fire would break out in a most unusual place and would spread quickly.
There would be initial efforts to contain the blaze and while these would not be as effective, they would help a bit. Losses would be exorbitant.
Road accidents continue at an alarming rate, largely because of the carefree attitude of the road users. A speeding driver is going to attempt to overtake when he would encounter serious problems. He is going to collide with an immovable object, spin and cause even more damage.
This is going to happen even as the nation takes time to enjoy the holidays. Alcohol would be blamed and another soul would be sent to the Great Beyond.
The criminals are busy planning their escapades, but there are the omnipresent police and community groups. But there is one group who would select an easy target in the eastern part of the country. Then there would be another that would target a community to the west. The latter is going to prove problematic because of the limited escape routes.
