We grew up under the threat of annihilation by the Russians. We knew people who had been abducted as children and had horrible things done to them. We grew up a short distance from real life "heavy metal" inspired murders. We had real life drug-crazed devil worshipping MURDERERS in our midst. Not to mention growing up in a town that was just starting on its decent into becoming a "not so good place". Is it any wonder our psyches are so messed up?
