At It Again
“Oh, Janet, you have SUCH an imagination!” my mother used to say.
Well, my imagination is at it again.
I recently learned that a family from India has bought several service stations in my community, and that gave me an idea.
What if our enemies in the Taliban were to arrange for hundreds of their members and friends to buy every service station in the USA? Then they could cause major problems for us by refusing to sell gas so we’d have no transportation. And maybe they’d even blow up all the stations and start huge fires all over the country.
Of course that couldn’t really happen because not all service station owners would be willing to sell. And many people could use electric cars, bikes, or other forms of transportation. (And I’m sure the local family from India are not members of the Taliban.)
But it might be an idea for a sci-fi book. (Writers, feel free to use the idea since I don’t write things like that.)
