Rant time, and a break from politics... Mike goes to the wonder of denial.

A murder, child molestation or other horror happens. Is your immediate response that it never happens or simply can't happen on our block, in your neighborhood or in our town? That's human, but pretty silly.

Even withi mass murders, nieghbors often initially say it isn't true, because, "I kinow him. He's a nice guy." 

There are many dynamics working here. We'll touch on chauvsnism and the various flavors of denial, including it didn't happen, to it couldn't happen, to it wasn't as bad as all that, to some outsiders did it.
