“Our Town” / Memorable Fancies #585

     Something shameful happened in our town; something that none of us was brave enough to stop, to challenge, even to complain about in more than a whisper. The name of our town quickly became synonymous with cowardice in the face of evil.

     We gave the town a new name, then; wiped the old name off the monuments and mileage-markers. But whatever we renamed it, the stench of our town’s shame followed, and so we changed the name again. Already we have run through dozens of names. As we speak, our Naming Committee is selecting the next.
