The neighbors have an eviction hearing on Friday. I have not seen them packing or moving anything at all.

Which makes me wonder — are they planning to fight this thing? Because I can’t really think of a plausible argument for paying one month’s rent then just NOT PAYING AGAIN. They owe Juan more than $5,000. Are they going to crap out all that cash? And if so, why haven’t they done it before now? I would really love to be there and hear what they have to say. That is, if they show up. And if they don’t: The sheriff can remove them the next day. Which is to say, by next week, we could be living gangsta-free.
