 I picked up a hitchhiker with a black Labrador in Slab City yesterday who got in the car and without preamble said, "This is the Ox-Bow Incident."

I asked what he meant and he said that when he arrived in this dusty western town a month ago a guy had just shot a girl, and the townspeople ran him off his place and burned it to the ground.

I reviewed the plot of the great western by Clark and found that indeed I'm living in the Ox-Bow Incident where right is defended with right and wrong is punished by the citizens.
