The carnival is closed. The rides are off, concession stands closed and there is a small group of camping trailers. Over the morning hours you begin to notice a man or woman walking about. I stopped two men walking. They are both wearing jeans and green t-shirts with work boots. The man smiles at me. Can I ask you a few questions? He nods his head in agreement with a smile, but says nothing.

Then the man was led off by his friend. I wanted to ask more questions, but to him and his friend the interview was over.
