I began to think about writing this article while watching the television show Jericho. First of all, let’s just get this out of the way. I know that “Jericho” is a television show. I know that it is fiction. I know that the conditions depicted are in no way realistic, etc. It is a television show. Okay, now that’s out of the way, I found myself considering events in the television show and how I would expect things in my community to go. Would we share our food? Would we all get together at the pub for information? Who would come forward as a leader in our community since we have no local government?
