So this weekend there was another headline in the news, "Arkansas Evangelist's compound raided". Which raises some good questions. Why didn't the town know something was wrong the day someone said they wanted to "start a compound".
If you are single, looking to pick up some girls - just try to ask them to come home to your compound - see what happens.
If you are looking to build a house - and blue prints for a compound show up - you might want to think again.
If your realtor invites you to an "open house" on a compound - get a new realtor.
If you get a phone call from the parents of your children's friends - asking if your children could come over for a "play date" and their address ends with the word "compound" - you might want to reconsider.
If you ARE a compound - consider changing your name to estate, facility, union hall, or congregation. It's just good Public Relations.
