My guess is someone is messing with the name on their wi-fi.
However, we do live in a government research town. Most of the people around town have high security jobs.
I was willing to go along with Mom to try and find the "van".
However, I have to tell you that I once did live in a place where a surveillance van regularly patrolled the streets. They (the security people)
were quite clear that everything we said and did was under surveillance. My husband was military and because of his particular job we were not
allowed to live anywhere but this idyllic "stepford" town. I know I was listened to there for certain. Several times I was warned by people other
than my husband not to talk about _____ to my mother. I only talked to her using my cell phone because our home phones had signs on them saying that
everything said on them was listened to. Even our email was required to be dial up and the number was within "stepford", so I knew they read our
email regularly. This was not paranoia, this was real and we actually had to sign documents saying we knew they were doing it. There was no crime in
"stepford", we never locked our doors, kids could play outside safely and ride bikes to the stores and back safely, even at night. No DUI's, no
trouble of any kind, ever. "Stepford" was surrounded by fences that were constantly monitored by armed guards. Guards with live ammo patrolled the
area. The kids got used to the weird noises and would laugh at the new kids who would duck and cower at the noises. It was safe, idylic for kids in
a wierd sort of way, free rent, free utilities, beautiful environment for the area. However, it was the biggest nightmare I ever lived through, and
yes it was in the USA.
But this SUV doesn't look anything like the nightly run through stepford surveillance van I had seen regularly before. That one was a classic cargo
type van, but they actually had antennae mounted on it facing both directions. The van never went anywhere except to patrol "stepford" and was
parked in our neighborhood in plain sight. This was under Clinton.
Hey, could be why I don't trust the government, huh?! I was told to shut up about things I had seen and knew on more than one occasion and the only
way anyone would know I said these things was if they listened to me talk in my home (at least one thing I was reprimanded for I only said to
neighbors and not on the phone) or on my phone.
But, this time I don't think it is the case, hmmmmmmmmm.
I did go take a picture but can't figure out how to post it. Tell, me and I'll do it. I clicked on image and it asked for a url.
