Slouching towards Bethlehem: Essays by Joan Didion
Slouching towards Bethlehem: Essays

jamesdow777, December 30, 2009

I knew Lucille Miller; she was a neighbor of mine. I lived at 1205 Monte Verde Avenue, Upland, California from September 1957 until June 1959. The Millers lived just a few houses north of me.

I remember the Millers. They were the typical Leave it to Beaver, Donna Read, Ozzie and Harritt folks. Very nice.

When the fire happened, I was working at Taka Taco on Foothill Boulevard, a couple of blocks south of where we were neighbors. One of my co workers was a fireman from Alta Loma. Right after the fire, he informed me that the fire was definitely intentional, no ifs, ands or buts.

This is heresay, and no scientific evidence was presented. But why do you suppose a disinterested third party would accuse the wife? He had a wife of his own etc., and a daughter too.
