Awesome lines like this, about Brookline of all places:
Dead rabbits had been seen hanging outside to drain their blood. Mr. Weyand, his wife and five children had been observed chasing and killing screaming chickens.
Not that the slaughter of screaming chickens is funny, but my God READING about children chasing and killing screaming chickens sure as hell is.
There are crazy people in this city, folks. Nuts.
