It pins false blame on people such as Bob Brown and Billy Tyne, romanticizes hardships of Linda Greenlaw and Bugsy Moran, and capitalizes off Murph’s tragedy and the human interest in the tragic woes of others. As each person continues to create stories out of their own lives, one might consider how these stories would be depicted — if one might be the villain of their own tragedy. These stories deserve to tell the real truths of the real people, not to be altered at their expense. After all, all humanity is in the end is the stories of the people of whom it is

His attitude in this chapter is comparable to how he feels after committing the crime. At this time in his life, rather than being a self-motivated guilt like he had after he committed the murders, it was a guilt pressured on to him by Sonia. She gave him something to look forward to whenever his sentence was completed. Although it may not be genuine, he realizes the torture he had put Sonia through, saying “he recalled how he had constantly caused her pain” (527). This reveals that he has a sense of remorse for at least some of his actions, particularly the pain he caused Sonia.

However, it does not seem like a few farms closing down here and there would be a huge thing for the overall good, but what is not normally discussed is how farm jobs actually support other jobs, actually 3 to 4 jobs on average (Jacoby). With the decrease of farms and farms job, other Americans

On the left side of the photo, there are two people, (three if the boy in the box is included), a tent, and the aforementioned cluttered stove. On the right, there is one woman, a truck, and two chairs, one which holds newly washed laundry. The mess of unbalance shows both the state and federal government that the migrant camps have no positive effect on the state of those who live there. Campers are clumped together, squeezing all of what little belongings they had into their small designated area as to not take away from another family’s spot.
