“Were you ever afraid or doubtful of opening your door to a rain-soaked stranger in need, on a dark, stormy night, especially if it’s a young woman who insists she’s harmless and only needs to use your phone?
Would you let her into your home, especially if you lived at the end of a suburban cul-de-sac?
What if you were a middle-aged, childless couple who has been married for 30 years and are bored silly, with little or nothing to say to each other? Would that even matter?
That, folks, is only the beginning.”
