Nobody is perfect, they say. So how many bad neighbours do you need, to make one good neighbour? Three? Eleven?

And if the bad neighbours (the ones you will use as raw material for a good one) if they are really really bad buys, like some guys from Soprano’s or some such mob lot, do you need less of them or more of them to make one perfect neighbour?

I mean, if there is some goodness in every person, then you’d think the more raw material neighbours you get, the better.

But, if you think about the bad guys, each one of them having way more badness than goodness, then you’d be better off with less raw material guys, rather than more of them. Sigh. Now you know what kind of stuff keeps one up at night..
