Slabbers of the World Unite!

Rife with snowbirds, octogenarian outlaws and senior 'ladies of the night', the forgotten world of Slab City faces the stark realities of progress.

Slab City lacks most of the necessities of life, including running water, sewage, electricity, mail service, telephone lines, grocery stores or hospitals -- the latter a fairly serious problem since almost the entire population is over 55 years old, with a good number over 80.

But it also lacks other things -- rules, supervisors, curfews, family values, schedules, neighbours, taxes, rents, fees, police, bailiffs, nagging spouses. This holds great appeal to a number of people who have slaved their whole lives under boring jobs and stultifying families, their sanity maintained only by dreams of wide-open spaces and complete freedom. We may see barren emptiness, but they see clear air free of responsibility.


Indeed.
