The End of the Road by Tom Bodett

I know in my heart that if I ever get to the end of the road, some kind soul will have left the light on for me.
-Lewis Grizzard

Tom Bodett gained a nationwide audience with his syndicate radio variety show broadcast from Homer, Alaska, the last decent parking place in North America. Tom has charmed millions of listeners with his warm, funny, nostalgic - and often touching - stories of the just plain folks whove found their way to the End of the Road.

Its a small Alaska town where people leave their pretensions back where they come from, and urban planners push more salt than pencils. Where New Age missionaries make appearances in the bowling alley, and the police chief weeps over the plight of Bambi. And the mayor stays in office mostly because they dont want the bother of trainin up a new one...

Similarities between the characters in this narrative and individuals either living or dead doesnt seem at all surprising.
