Changes in Mayberry

Kansas City, MO

#1 Oct 16, 2008
I can think of several changes over the relatively recent past.
Mexican methamphetamine is now an epidemic in Mayberry.
Andy is clearly not the Sheriff now, as Andy wouldn't allow it.
Is the former "man in brown" working as head of security at the mall? Who owns the mall? The stock market? A fleet of high dollar vehicles? Half the land in Surry Co. etc... and wasn't these guys sweeping floors and cutting tobacco not too long ago. How do you make that much that fast?$595 carports? I guess the AMERICAN dream is alive and well in Mayberry after all.
Could it possibly have anything to do with the meth problem?
No significant seizures or arrests in how long?
You've got to ask yourselves, what is being done about the problem and why. There's always the ballot box . Why doesn't someone, anyone ask your elected officials which side they are on? Someone beam me up as there appears to be little or no intelligent life left here in Mayberry.

As I have said before. All the elected officials care about is their Cross Creek/Montclaire elitist cliques, their picture-perfect stepford wives, and their closed-minded values. There is no middle class in Mount Airy, and there never will be. Our favorite resident slumlord will not be rattled until a Meth lab blows up one of his properties. While I agree with Dave that Mayberry never was, i do think people in the town are obsessed with stupid, small petty things. I have managed to escape to the real world where people are educated, and women have their own opinions and sense of self. They don't just adopt the same style and mindset of the other wives who drive the same model Honda Odessey, Mercedes Suv, or giant Burb. Please develop an original thought, ladies!! Also, I have moved to where men vote their conscience, and not their golf foursome. I would dry up and die if I had to move back to that place. Get out while you can!!!

The meth problem affects so many children and loved ones of people who don't make such foolish choices..The recent murders of Mark Hall and my niece Melissa Weaver by a methaddict hired ny 2 Drug dealers has angered 436 people.Soon things will be done about the labs,the dealing,the lack of concern,the incompetence. www.myspace.com/422439066

My niece was only 19 years old.I blame 3 people,i place most of the blame on crystal meth however and no one is trying to stop its flow..

I am not hearing any solutions just bickering and foolishness about small town gossip and trivia. Also regarding people who have moved to "Paradise" aka Charlotte, no problems there hey? The "Meth" problem is a monster that benefits no one! Two things can happen. One, Law enforcement on the State and Federal level puts pressure on the perpetrators or Two cmon folks citizens have a right to safe living. Do what you have to do. Any veterans out there willing to help?

The strange thing is that around here no one gets into any trouble for drugs untill they piss the wrong people off ! As long as you are a good customer and do not try to get out of the drug scene , you too are so untouchable , but as soon as you try to do right , you get charged with the impossible in order to distract from those who are right in front of our noses !

Mayberry is a work of fiction, Mt. Airy is real, but its no Mayberry

I lived in Mt. Airy a few years back. We stopped in for their annual "Mayberry Days". My wife at the time was taken in by the event and wanted to settle there, so we rented a home and tried to assimilate.

To use the local jargon, having Yankees in town made them all "ill"
(For those not familiar, ill in NC does not mean sick, it means bad-tempered, angry, etc.)

Because I was born north of the Mason-Dixon (NJ/NY), We were hated more than the general population hated blacks.

(It didn't matter to the general white population that my people were not even in this country during the civil war, we were still in Italy)

(and it didn't help that I am opposed to bigotry, I don't judge people by their race)

There were few, if any blacks living in town. Most of them had to live in a "shanty town" of aluminium huts. It was like a third world country.

The only steady work I could get was driving Taxi.

I was no "Taxi Virgin", I have driven taxi in many places, NY, FL, PA, GA, etc (including "Hells Kitchen NY" and other bad neighbourhoods) and I have never seen such a Taxi business as existed in NC. I learned of the underbelly of NC real fast. Mt. Airy is a place unto itself.

Everywhere you go, there is some drugs and prostitution, and they call cabs, I know, but in MT. Airy it was extreme.

Almost all of the Taxi business involved running liquor, Drug dealers and prostitutes (many of whom were under-age, as young as 14)

Very little of the rides were regular people going anywhere that was not based on booze, drugs or whores.

a huge number of the regular (non-criminal) population were homebound alcoholics, who would have the taxi pick up their booze and deliver it to them

I don't know if "The Block" still exists. It is or was a section of MT Airy that only drug dealers, drug users, prostitutes (including 14 yr olds) and their customers went into. The police never went in there that I was aware of.

Outside of the block there were so many crack houses I lost count.

One Taxi ride of note was when one of the top drug dealers at the time (a 16 yr old kid) had me drive him out some backwoods country road to the barn where his supplies were kept. There were at least 50+ of his people guarding it, all armed to the teeth with pistols, rifles, shotguns and automatic weapons.

I don't know if this is true, but I heard later, after I left, that a top cop was involved in "The Block", that he got busted for it.

There is so much more I can pass on about my time in Mt. Airy

Mt. Airy is truly the worst place I ever lived.
