bill rented a dingy office in a rundown building in the worst parts of town
most of his friends wouldn't even visit him there
everyone told him to find a new job
"no," he would say "i have friends there"

his wife disliked the arrangement, but stopped protesting
it surprised her when bill suddenly announced he was renting a new office in the suburbs

the next morning she caught him sobbing over the morning newspaper
she read the headlines
"teenage girl killed in daytime drive-by"
a photo showed a girl laying on the sidewalk in front of bill's building
