The Difference Between Neighbours

The Difference Between Neighbours

One of my favourite Dolly tunes is Two Doors Down.

It reminds me of road trips with Holly and Dana, especially those regular late evening commutes between White City and Marianna.

Proximity is not an indicator of behaviour. What goes on in one home may be very different than what is going on two doors down, or even just next door. For instance, take Uganda and Kenya. The responses of the two governments to the situation of soaring prices of food and fuel are very different. When one leader insists that there is nothing his government can do to stop the skyrocketing prices, the equivalent leaders next door assure citizens that measures are being taken to cushion them from increased food and fuel prices.

In Uganda, citizens get, "If prices have gone up, this is good."

Is what is good for the goose good for the gander?

The answer is, yes, when inquiring about vitamin B, and by vitamin B, I mean Britney Spears.

It looks amazing. Sadly, I'm not visiting the US this summer, so no Femme Fatale for me.
