    Who hates crowds?

    I do for one! Always have hand on my wallet for one thing! And other arm tightly tucked in to cover the piece.

    Gets worse with age but I have a distinct dislike for suffering being jossled. Add to that a near impossibility to stay on top of who is who and what they might be up to. Further consideration is sometimes extreme difficulty of escape.

    I never did do much watching of games live - maybe partly for this reason - if too I were to want to go to a game with no carry allowed - well that'd be out anyways!. Worst in recent years is local County Fairground - Fair week watching tractor pulling or Friday night stock cars - even then not so much crowds as - just ''a lotta people" - manageable.

    I do now certainly take active measures to avoid crowds - even if it means missing out on something.

    Odd? Maybe.

    Last weekend my wife and I went to the D.C. auto show. Too d*mn crowded, and to be honest, I couldn't wait to get out of there.

    But the FIRST thing as we were getting off of the Metro - I put my wallet in my front pocket and walked around the whole time with my hand in my pocket.

    Well if you lived in my crime infested cowtown you would really hate going anyplace with many people.

    Around here they attack in WalMart parking lots. At Malls. At the car washs. Gas stations.

    There is just no safe place after you leave home.

    I am here to tell you if you go out at night you better be armed and ready to defend yourself.

    If you think our new little friends won't attack you with many others around you guess again.

    Being around large crowds makes me nervous, too...in the high school in which I teach, I make it a point to avoid being in the halls during class change. Not because the students are any worse (they are probably better behaved) than in alot of other public schools, but because the halls are too darn crowded (we need a "hall-stretcher"--anyone have a spare one handy?).

    Chris, ask Steve, in a crowd my money is in my boot. Good place for the wallet too. Tulsa is a good place for a crowd.

    What, you don't wear boots? Well, start.

    Not too many crowds around here, and I try to avoid them if at all possible. When I go to a tractor pull or parade, it is as a participant, not as a spectator.

    I guess the last time I was in a real crowd was at the Who concert at Folsom Field in Boulder (1989?). Worth it, but still an uneasy feeling around that many people (even if most of them were stoned).

    I hate most people, so I guess that means I hate crowds. It's not so much that I'm a hatefull person or scared of them, but I believe the majority of people are morons, and then there are the minority that are actually bad. Good crowds would mainly include sporting events, again filled with morons but at least I'm usually entertained by the game.

    Crowds? Nothing makes me nuttier than crowds. I still prefer a quiet creek with crickets and chiggers over people.
