Not A Good Place To Retire
My Miami story for today has to do with a retired doctor who lived in The Village Of Pinecrest, my neighborhood. Pinecrest was supposedly one of the "better neighborhoods." A high school kid a few years back decided to skip school one day to burglarize houses. He encountered this gentle saver of lives and shot him dead. All to steal his car. This is a classic Miami story. In the end, like so many others, it was the doctor who made the miscalculation. He believed that Miami was a safe place to retire. Read about it in: MIAMI: A SURVIVOR'S TALE, by The Black Mountain Press. The book can be pre-ordered at: http://www.theblackmountainpress.com/ "catalog"
